Beginning Sculpture Techniques


Pursue a more sculptural introduction to non-ferrous metalworking techniques. In this class students will learn the use of tools & techniques including model making, sawing, hammer forming, high-temp soldering, cold connections, surface texture, patina, and the incorporation of other non metal materials. Working primarily in Copper & Brass students will explore one organic influenced project, and one geometric project of their own creation.
