In this full weekend workshop at the Center for Metal Arts, Vivian Beer will explore surface manipulation and pushing the dimensional form in hot sheet work. We will form and fabricate steel sheet in order to make hollow expressive forms. Topics of pattern making, basic hot and cold forming, tool selection, welding, and finishing with various abrasives will be introduced. We will cut, form, weld and grind our way from flat sheet material to expressive three dimensional form, with applications from sculpting, jewelry, and art furniture to the modification of motorized vehicles. Intermediate to Advanced.
The Center for Metal Arts is accessible by public transportation from NYC.
