Intermediate Copper & Iron Workshop: Sculpture

When: Aug. 12, 2024, 6 p.m.

Intermediate Copper & Iron Workshop: Sculpture 

Monday - Friday, August 12-16, 6pm-8:30pm

Returning students will design and create a copper and iron sculpture inspired by modern British sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Emphasis will be on the importance of both positive and negative space within a composition. Hot and cold forging of copper and iron, drifting, swaging, fullering and raising are some of the techniques we will expand on in this weeklong workshop. This class is the second in our series exploring motifs taken from famous artists’ work. Prerequisite: Introductory Copper & Iron Workshop. Ages: 16 & up.

Blacksmithing is a physical art and safety is our number one priority. Students swing hammers, work with hot metal, and move between workstations on a packed dirt floor. For their own safety and that of others, all students must be able to take direction from our instructor. If you have questions about Blacksmithing classes or about accessibility and accommodations, please contact us at before registering and we will be happy to help!

Due to the high demand and limited space in these classes, purchases are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Must be able to attend all five sessions. In particular, the first class includes vital safety information. Missing the first class or any of the other classes forfeits your place in the workshop and you will not be refunded.
