Join us at Stonybrook on April 28th for ArtWeek Boston. We’ll be hosting a few workshops including: Make a Ring, Weld a Critter, and Aluminum Sandcasting. In Make a Ring learn the basics of jewelry fabrication and students take home copper and silver rings they made. In Weld a Critter students learn how to MIG weld and create their own critter to take home. In Aluminum sandcasting students learn the ancient practice of metal casting and make thier own sand mold and watch as we fill the mold with molten metal. Students then clean up their cast sculpture and take it home! Afterwards enjoy refreshments in an ArtWeek exclusive Samuel Adams Brewery tour, and get a cookie from Ula Cafe.
Check out the awesome WGBH interview with Terrance Wong. He talks about teaching welding to his teen students from the Boston Day and Evening Academy at Stonybrook. They are learning how to use tools, equipment, plan projects and how to bring them to life.
We were excited to participate with the Peabody Essex Museum Rodin Exhibit to demonstrate the process of casting bronze using sand molds and then welding the pieces back together to create a finished form. This was a really fun project!
EXHIBITS and INSTALLATIONS
“The Discarded” is a welded steel barrel sculpture by Morris Norvin depicting a mother and cub polar bear standing on a dissolving glacier. “Piscator II” is another welded sculpture by Norvin and was fabricated using recycled barrel hoops. The barrel hoops and the steel barrels, originally containing maple syrup, were donated to Stonybrook by The Sam Adams Brewery. Both are currently on display at Stonybrook Fine Arts.
