Thinking Outside the Box: How to Add Dimensionality to Your Work with Hollow Forms

Hollow Forms

Hollow Forms

This class is  great fun and crammed full of techniques and information. 

Add a whole new dimension to your work with hollow-forms. Construct a 3-dimensional pendant or brooch from flat sheets of sterling or copper. Explore dapping block techniques and 3-d fabrication to build hollow forms of your own design. Learn the proper sequencing of steps, soldering tricks, and most efficient fabrication techniques, while also considering design, construction challenges, and wearability. There are endless possibilities for these hollow forms to incorporate in your own fabricated designs.

Mookaite Box Clasp edit cp.jpg

Bomb Proof Box Clasps:

Check back for more information on a workshop I will be teaching at Boulder Metalsmithing, October 2019.

These won’t be just any ol’ box clasps. These are solid and require no back-up clasp if they release accidentally. This box clasp does not release until you release it. This box clasp can be put into hollow forms to add a whole new dimension to your work. You will learn precision measuring, cutting, filing, soldering. These new skills will push your metalsmithing to a whole new height. This workshop is for intermediate metals students.
