In this class for continuing stonecarving students, you'll learn how to design a piece from start to finish -- from sketching on paper to using your skills to transfer that design to stone. The class will include further discussion of tools, types of stone, and a deeper exploration of carving processes. To get the most out of this class, you must be comfortable with using hand, power, and pneumatic carving tools. Prerequisite: Beginning Stonecarving

Damascus steel, the stuff of ancient legends, is taken one step further in the current way of replicating it by forge welding layered steel with a hydraulic press. Celeste Tracy has been making Damascus at Pratt for nine years and continues to be fascinated with the process. She will familiarize students with this process by using Pratt's Damascus forge and hydraulic press built specifically for this purpose. This technique opens up the possibilities of a myriad of designs and uses for the patterned steel produced. The student will come away with a billet ready to transform into a future work of art.

Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques.

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Akari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of sculptural paper lamps. From this we can gain inspiration and ideas for a pendant lamp design that can be completed in the five day class. In this class you will learn to build a sculptural lamp using several different wood bending techniques such as heat bending thin strips of wood, and using basket reed, and a tapered lamination technique that is unique and fun. Students will use these techniques to create three dimensional bends such as spirals, and helical forms without the constraints of clamps or conventional bending forms. You will learn the basics of the tapered lamination process, beginning with rough lumber that you will joint, plane, and rip into thin strips to be tapered. Send an email to Kim Mcintyre kmcintyre@pratt.org to get the finer details of the class, including the required student tool list.

We will learn how to form sheet, work with minimal hand tools and bucks, design and weld frames, as well as exercise gtaw (tig) and gas welding.  We will work with fasteners, hardware and decide when welding is the best answer. We will work together to design two projects for the class. One geometric hollow form and one that fits to a section of frame.  Prerequisite - Beginning Welding and Fabrication suggested but not necessary. Supply fee - $45

This is a great way to begin woodworking or to refine the skills that you already have. Class time will be split between demonstrations, and individual hands-on shop time creating small projects from start to finish. Prerequisite: None. Supply Fee $50

Green woodworking is when you use a freshly cut log. The extra moisture in the wood makes carving way easier to do then when working with dried wood. Experience getting to work green wood with an adze and a hook knife to make a bowl. Bowls in this carving style tend to take on a deeper platter shape and often tool marks are intentionally left for visual interest due to the texture they leave behind. All experience levels are welcome. If you have taken Ed's Carving Tool Making class, this will be a fun opportunity to use your new tools.
