Our semester-long classes are designed to give students a complete immersion in folk craft and artistry. After the successful completion of a semester-long class, some students will use this introduction knowledge to enter the Folk School Apprenticeship Program (details coming soon).
This course will use metal and other related materials to create pieces of jewelry, small sculptures, and other utilitarian items. Students will learn a variety of hand tools and basic equipment such as hammers, files, and saws. They will explore various techniques from annealing, forming, connecting, and more. There will be class discussions upon group completion of their projects which will reinforce proper vocabulary and concept used to create their craft item. Projects will include rings, bracelets, and pendants with an open project at the end of the semester.
This course is for the student who is committed and serious about folk craft. This is not for the dabbler. There will be research homework assigned and a student evaluation will be given at the end of the semester.
