Through the lens of metal materials such as copper and nickel, this workshop will take students through the process of creating forms utilizing the basketry technique of coiling. Students will learn the steps necessary to prep their metal and specific cold connection methods. The culmination of these efforts will be a unique object all their own. Most importantly, this workshop will include plenty of time for experimentation. You will be encouraged to play!


All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
