Metal Sculpture

Instructor: Brian Kirk

Please read our Pandemic & Health Crisis Policy and S.A.F.E.R Playbook linked below. Students are introduced to metallurgy and learn how to weld mild steel plate and rod with oxyacetylene welding equipment to create decorative sculpture and furniture. After practicing on available scrap metal, students design their own projects that range from table-top sculpture to decorative furniture like coffee and side tables. Blacksmithing techniques are demonstrated to fold, band and twist metal into new forms. Copper brazing and bronze brazing are demonstrated and incorporated into the welders’ tool kit to supplement their understanding of metalworking. Volumetric, kinetic, geometric and linear sculpture creation are demonstrated by the instructor.

We have a protocol that we follow for deciding when it is reasonably safe to resume in studio classes. We’re continuing to follow all Covid Safety protocols on the state and local levels for onsite activities and are monitoring the conditions in Alexandria. Sadly, winter in-person classes are suspended until conditions improve. Online classes continue as scheduled.
 
Resumption In-Person Classes Policy
In-person classes will resume when Alexandria sustains thresholds of:
—the Daily New Case Rate at or below 25.0 per 100k; with
—the Covid-19 Infection Rate at or below 1.10; and
—the Positive Test Rate is at or below 10% or below.
