In this workshop students will learn how to pierce with a drill and use a jeweler’s saw to cut sheet metal and create intricate designs to be worn as earrings. These pieces will be embellished using textures made with stamps and hammers, and can be layered with other materials (acrylic or brass) to be riveted together with wire. Different metal surface finishing techniques will be taught. Students will also learn how to shape and bend ear wire for comfortable and attractive wearing.

 

Brooklyn Metal Works (BKMW), is a metal art studio and exhibition space that offers space to rent for the development of work in the metalsmithing field, as well as offering technique and concept based classes and gallery space to promote artists, designers and makers. The intention of this studio is to present a safe working and learning environment, complete with a wide inventory of tools and equipment. This collaborative setting is designed to foster exploration, encourage experimentation, and strengthen the knowledge of all involved. Brooklyn Metal Works aims to promote the field of metalsmithing and to further critical dialogue among those who practice, write about, and invest time and energy into the field.
