 This "hands-on" workshop will focus on the design and creation of your own unique pouring vessel during a week long workshop with master silversmith Kevin O'Dwyer!

Kevin O'Dwyer

April 1-5, 2019

Monday - Friday, 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

This workshop will explore the design, fabrication and construction techniques used to create a vessel with particular emphasis on the basic vessel components: a hollow formed body, a fitted lid, functional pouring spout, handle and feet.

A variety of hollowware techniques will be examined and can be used to create your vessel.  Raising, lap joints, die forming, fold forming, forging, hinging, synclastic and anticlastic raising will be demonstrated during this metalsmithing master-class. Design and construction considerations such as form, function, structure, surface development and finishing techniques will be discussed throughout the workshop. Whether your concept is functional, sculptural, or a combination of both, this workshop will expand your knowledge and technical expertise. Insightful tips on soldering, surface preparation, fitting, filing, forging and forming will help save time and materials.

Master silversmith Kevin O'Dwyer will work with students from the initial concept to a finished piece. A combination of skill and technique based demonstrations with one to one tutoring and problem solving will take place throughout the workshop. Kevin will demonstrate both traditional and contemporary metalsmithing techniques as well as some "seat of the pants" variations!
