Sinking is one of the fundamental skills of a metalsmith and a vessel maker. It is a technique capable of producing beautiful, volumetric forms at a varied scale with relatively simple tools. This class is a great starting point for students who want to create metal vessels. Students will learn foundational forming tools, techniques, sight reading metal temperature, project planning, and more. Following each video demonstration there will be a Q & A with additional live studio demonstrations to supplement answers to any questions students may have. Prerequisite: None.
