EIGHTEEN thirteen year olds at one time in a room full of
equipment they haven't learned to handle safely yet?That 's a
challenge to the ingenuity of even an experienced teacher.
Yup! And I’ll give it a shot. I do have there art teachere with
me, and prompted by others like you (here and in the ArtMetal List)
have managed to elist the help of 2 ‘senior’ students (ages 17 or
18) as extra TAs.
harmful. Of course, as they are interested in producing a creation,
they'll most likely be very cooperative. The copper bracelet idea
is probably the simplest.
Weeel, yes, but actually copper twisted braclets are probably a
leetle passe nowadays, methinks, and I’ve been sticking to my idea
of a silver ring. Many (ArtMetal) suggested the band needn’t be
closed, in fact, if it’s left open there’s the soldering bit done
I’ll get them to hammer (steel punches, concrete, whatever) a
texture or design onto the flat silver, file, and form it up with a
wooden swage block. I’m also going to fit in a slide show! Two
clases, one hour each! I’ll be stomping. Happens Mar 12th. Wish me
luck, and do post any more suggestions, please.
