Class will begin with the simple, yet meticulous, concept of a box and lid, with each student making a unique steel chest. By breaking down and understanding the fundamental workings of a hinge, students will learn about the complexity of movement in sculpture, which may be the inspiration for their next project. Learning about steel fabrication and functionality will include various cutting, shaping, and welding techniques. Students are welcome to bring decorative items such as handles, fasteners, hooks, and latches to use in their sculptures.
The supply fee covers studio consumables and specialty items; additional sheet and rod will be available for purchase at market rates in class. All levels welcome.
