Instructor: Erica Moody
Level: Beginner – Experienced
Dates: May 24th- 28th, ( 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. )
Combining jewelry and larger metalwork fabrication techniques, we will explore ways to create metal utensils of mostly brass, copper, and steel. Through demonstrations and experimentation, students will have the opportunity to make one or more of their own eating and/or serving utensils – for practical use or for pure sculptural concept.
Techniques encouraged can include cold and hot forming (hand forging, stock removal, dapping, forming over shapes), cold connections (riveting, wrapping), finishing (angle grinding, hand filing, burnishing), combining different materials (different metals and/or materials found or brought in such as wood/bone/scrap metal etc.).
