The Brutal and the Delicate: Steel Combined With Soft Materials

Carl Reed

Tuition $1,095
Code S0101-22

Throughout the history of art, steel is a material commonly associated with industry, violence and strength. This workshop challenges such connections, investigating ways that steel can become visually delicate, and inventing new meanings and visual relationships through combining steel with materials that contain opposite characteristics. Exercises address both technical and creative inquiries regarding how steel is cut, shaped and physically joined and how to challenge material assumptions if steel becomes a secondary, rather than a primary, compositional element. We explore the aesthetic and technical consequences of combining steel with soft, vulnerable, contradictory and unexpected materials.

The Art of Metal

Carl Reed

Tuition $1,095
Code S1514-22

Delve into material experimentation, idea development and risk-taking while working in metals. This workshop provides an opportunity to make use of a well-equipped shop to further skill sets and students experiment with metal and drive their work to the next level. The course teaches the tools and tricks for welding and metal fabrication, such as bending, cutting, curling, braking, heating, smashing and drawing. Surface treatment, as it pertains to finishes, light and installation methods, is also covered. The goal is to help students build a foundation of skills so that they may explore, experiment and use these skills confidently in future projects.
