The Challenge

I found an awesome, intensive metals workshop hosted by Temple University that spans the UK & Philadelphia, PA. By the end of this program I plan on creating a new body of work utilizing both traditional metal working skills and 3D printing methods.   

My goal is to raise $1500 to help pay for airfare and living expenses while abroad. 

The Workshop

  • Four weeks jam packed with adventure!
  • London to Scotland, visiting art museums, the Glasgow School of Art, lots of galleries, artist studios, shows and more!
  • I will constantly be sketching and planning out a piece of art inspired by my travels 
 
  • Getting constructive feedback by Instructors at the Glasgow School of Art, master metalsmiths & silversmiths!

    • Working hands-on with metalsmiths in Philadelphia. Receiving additional instruction and learning new techniques.

    3D Printing? How are the rewards made? 

    3D printing is the process of creating objects by depositing material in a layering process. It is a process I love to use in my art to quickly create tangible models & final renditions.

    The ring and earrings are created with a greenery green PLA.                                           PLA is a new thermoplastic material I have been experimenting with that yields vibrant colors, is durable and Eco Friendly!  [Derived from corn, PLA is one of the most environmentally friendly 3D printing materials] 
    Yay Earth!
