Ring Making by Semar Prom. This workshop will introduce precious metals construction techniques. Learn cutting, forming, annealing, silver soldering, and finishing techniques on copper and sterling silver. Acquire the skills to make a copper ring, a copper hollow-form ring, and a sterling silver ring.
Tool Box Construction by Elizabeth Thorp. Build a hardy tool box while learning safe woodworking practices, the properties of wood, and box construction techniques such as mitering, spine joinery, and tongue and groove construction. Learn basic finishing techniques for this project and leave the workshop with a hand-crafted tool box and hands-on knowledge of its construction.
Flat Goods Engineering by Chris K. Palmer. This workshop is an introduction to flat goods engineering using laser cutters. We will explore fabrication systems that hold together with no glue or fasteners of any kind, using custom programs developed by the instructor and made available for the duration of the workshop. Materials explored will include paper and plywood.
Prerequisites: Some experience with modeling/drafting in Rhinoceros preferred.
Shadowfolds Textile Folds by Chris K. Palmer. Learn sew folding techniques in a variety of textiles with templates provided by the author of Shadowfolds: Surprisingly Easy-To-make Geometric Designs in Fabric. Using his book as a guide, start with projects shown there and then make other folds based on patterns that he has not yet published. (*Additional textile materials will be required.)
