Sculptural Hollow Forms

May 17 & 24, 2024 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm View in Your Timezone

Sandra will guide students through hollow construction in thin-gauge metal using forming and fabrication. She will cover three different hollow forms (spiculum, cone, and double-sided) that will open the door for students to make more advanced sculptural forms. Sandra will share her vast paper and metal template collection to demonstrate how simple 2D shapes can become exciting 3D forms. She will also cover stick soldering, patination, finishing techniques that utilize a variety of abrasives and common hand tools, and simple mechanisms that can transform hollow forms into functional, wearable jewelry. 

This will be an intermediate level class that requires students to have a basic understanding of metal fabrication (sawing, filing, soldering, finishing, etc.). With proper technique, forming with light metals does not require a lot of physical strength, but it does require some strength and the ability to stand for a few hours at a time.

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.
