Making by hand is the center of production in this course.  Students will experiment with wood, plaster, fabric, and cardboard in addition to building connections between their intentions and the crafted object. Multiples and one-of-a-kind projects will be fabricated in the studio using hand tools, power tools, and molds. Projects may have a sculptural approach or be born from a functional necessity. Emphasis is on the integrity, economy, and efficiency of material, pointing to issues of recycling and reuse.
