Forged, Formed and Fabricated Flatware: Making Unique Utensils

Course Description:

Utensils may be treasured keepsakes that enrich our lives and transport nourishment to our bodies. Using a number of different techiniques such as forging and forming a distinctive eating tool ( flatware ) may be made. Students will be shown a variety of ways to approach making a spoon, fork, knife or cocktail server ( condiment or olive fork / pate’ knife).

This class will cover an array of methods to construct, forge and decorate a wide range of tools to help us feed and imbibe. Chasing, stamping, matting forging, using  natural (found) stone, alternative gems setting, cold connections  and resin inlay will all be covered. Students will be encouraged to move beyond what we think of as traditional flatware to create their own heirlooms.

The class will be able to work with silver and non precious metals. It is advised that any metal touching food directly (not the handle) be made of silver. Silver has an antimicrobial quality, as it has been proven to destroy bacterial cells. Cool.
