This course is designed for those with good basic skills and an interest in developing some really exciting new forms, Botanical Forms. The course will lead students through the use of solid stock through direct forging and into the use of sheet stock to create larger volumes and forms then into the unique use of structure material such as pipe and tube for some 3D effect. The students basic blacksmithing skills will be needed to understand the new techniques and applications the will be taught through many interesting demonstrations. The use of all basic forging equipment as well as some entry level gas welding, mig welding and plasma cutting will broaden your metal working vocabulary. Time permitting we will also delve into the untraditional world of applying enamels to our work to give some much needed pops of color to our forged botanical forms.
