The Steel Yard just wrote in to let us know that registration is open for their Fall courses in Providence, RI:
Registration is now open for the Steel Yard’s Fall 2009 Course Season!
The Yard is gearing up for another great season of building, cutting, bending, and throwing. In addition to our regular lineup of courses we have some really exciting new offerings.
In Hollowware with Patrick McMillan students will explore metalsmithing and learn basic raising, sinking, and fabrication in order to form their own vessels from copper sheet.
Students working with Heather Guidero in Casting: Jewelry and Other Small Objects will learn the art of lost wax casting, a great method for producing one-of-a-kind objects as well as a whole run of identical copies. This course is a must for anyone interested in starting their own jewelry business.
Eye of the Beholder is wheel and hand-building course just for 14 to18 year-olds. This new offering encourages students to look beyond simple cups and bowls and explore the creative potential of the ceramic vessel.
