1) We will review basic shop safety and the working operations of the equipment we will be using. There will be a hand out with guidelines on shop safety, information about the sculpture and drawings of the project. A workshop liability release form will be read, signed and completed before any work can begin in the studio.
2) The workshop will focus on developing basic metal working skills through building a sculptural volume. Basic layout, cutting, welding, and finishing techniques will be used. The sculptural element created during the workshop will be crafted from thin gauge sheet metal along with solid, and tube stock mild steel materials. Each workshop will complete one section of the four part project.
