5 sessions. $500 noncredit*; $40 lab fee payable at registration.
Special opportunity to work with a visiting artist from Washington
State. This hands-on workshop teaches students how to develop
complex and spontaneous surface effects using interactions of
textures, patinas, and mixed-metal patterns. Both precious and
nonprecious metals are combined using a variety of techniques,
including fusion, solder inlay and overlay, marriage-of-metals, and
production of roller textures. A number of patinas and forming
techniques appropriate to the surfaces are demonstrated. Participants
learn useful metallurgical and chemical concepts and are encouraged
to experiment. A materials list will be provided at registration.
Other course offerings this summer include week-long intensives with
Brigid O’Hanrahan and Kathleen Browne, as well as weekend workshops
in enameling, chain-making, and soldering gold and silver with iron.
