Oh how I love texture on metal! This workshop evolved from a happy accident and ever since I’ve been having a blast etching anything that I can get my hands on! In this workshop, you will learn a fast and easy technique for creating “etched” metal surfaces without having to deal with toxic chemicals and hours of agitation. After etching the metal in the morning, we will spend the rest of the day constructing a unique figurative sculpture using the metal that we altered. While working on the sculpture, we will cover basic cold connection methods as well as composition and design. I will also demonstrate a quick and easy way to make a mold of just about anything. If you’d like, please bring some extra metal to etch, you can etch these in the morning and take them home to use in other projects. This technique will become a treasured favorite and will be useful in many other projects. You will leave with at least one figurative sculpture, two or more if you work fast and bring extra tins and heads!

$20 Materials Fee covers one new tin, one hand-made clay face, sandpaper, hanging wire, nuts and bolts, patina, extra metal for attaching head, a few found objects, and use of instructors hand carved stamps, tools and other consumables.

Level: Beginner and above
