Tools and Techniques for Intuitive Design

Touchstone Center for Crafts

07/16/2018 - 07/20/2018

Learn to make and use different tooling for texture and embellishment with hand, sledge, and power hammer. We will discuss and explore different techniques with an emphasis on controlled material isolation and movement, and how all of these processes can inform design. You will then use what you have learned to execute personal forging projects of your own design.

All Skill Levels Welcome
