Creative Surface Development- Andy Cooperman

Tired of the same old surfaces? Want a chance to develop some new ones? Here’s your chance.

Next to form, the surface of an object may be what most defines it and gives it depth and character. But it seems that we so often come to rely on a handful of basic textures rather than developing our own creative surfaces.

The goal of this fun and fast-paced 3-day class is to fix that, to uncover new ways to consider surface. Through play (it’s not a dirty word) and experimentation, we’ll develop a series of sample “flash cards”, each accompanied by detailed notes about just how the surface was produced, so that it can be replicated for future application. Then, using some of the surfaces discovered, participants will build a brooch or pendant. A simple but elegant brooch finding system will be demonstrated.

This class focuses on heat-generated surfaces as well as rolled, hammered and abraded finishes. Discussion includes using natural surfaces as source material as well as how and when to apply surface texture during the construction of a piece. Bring a sense of play, an open mind and a sharp pencil- there are sure to be lots of tips and tricks.
