June 24 - June 28, 2024

Micro-sculpture: Wearable Art

This class will focus on the construction of small-scale porcelain forms to be combined with metal for wearable art. Topics include micro-tool making, silicone molds, pressing clay forms, finishing treatments, and basic metal fabrication. Micro-sculpture uses specialized tools and flexible molds to reproduce forms in clay. This technique allows for control of the material and quick reproduction of objects. Combine clay with metal to enhance imagery, create fixtures, and fabricate pin backs.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $170-200. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop.
