DATES: August 24 – 28, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: Open to all
CONCEPT: In this workshop, the rigid structure of metal and wood is paired with a range of complementary flexible surfaces, for a focused sculptural experimentation around the elements of line and plane. Fabricate three- dimensional line drawings by shaping and welding steel rod, or cut and join wood pieces. Then explore attaching a range of flexible materials – from muslin to felt, paper to plastic – to make dynamic new sculptures.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use an industrial sewing machine and hand stitching skills, cold fasteners such as grommets, rivets, and snaps, light welding, basic woodshop tools and fastening techniques, steel, wood, paper, fabric, felt, and plastics. Students are encouraged to bring their favorite materials.
ACTIVITIES: We participate in demonstrations, image presentations, and group discussion balanced with ample work time, individual instruction and guidance.
