4 Wednesdays: August 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd, 6-10pm
Go 3-D! This workshop will move away from working flat by designing and building hollow metal beads. We've added a 4th night to this workshop to provide you ample one-on-one time and working time to complete your design.
Students will learn how to work with a three-dimensional paper model to plan and construct their design. Then we will build on your soldering skills by experimenting with different techniques to solder more complicated structures. Learn proper methods for soldering hollow pieces safely. Safety is crucial in when it comes to hollow forms!
In this four session workshop you can expect to complete at least one large, hollow mixed metal bead. This technique will open up a whole world of design possibilities and breathe new life and dimension into your work.
This workshop is recommended for students that have sawing, filing and soldering experience. This is a great follow up to the MS1&2 sessions.
Bring your own materials! 18g brass, copper and sterling silver is recommended. Materials can be purchased at the studio. All supplies such as solder, fuel, flux, and use of finishing supplies etc. will be included in the class fee.
