The Soul of Forgotten Materials with Geoffrey Gorman
November 28 – December 1, 2021
Sunday – Wednesday
This intensive workshop encourages students to experiment with innovative and intuitive ways of creating a variety of structures and forms using organic, found and recycled materials. Students are invited to think about shapes and forms that hold particular interest and bring these ideas to the workshop. Carving foam will be used as the form and body for each piece.
Using unusual techniques developed by Gorman to overcome construction challenges, each student will complete a variety of forms, something they want to create. Students will be asked to bring some of their own favorite cast off materials. This class is perfect for beginners seeking an introduction to creating curious objects as well as intermediate and advanced students wishing to reach the next level and break out of their comfort zone. Students need to be familiar with using hand and power tools like drills, band saws, and sanders.
