Surface treatments can be subtle or striking, adding drama, com- plexity and originality to your work. Learn to control and manipu- late the surface of metal, creating an array of interesting patterns, dramatic textures and rich finishes. Instruction and demonstration covers dozens of surface treatments including rolled, embossed, filed, engraved, burred, punched, scribed, and hammered patterns plus torch textures such as reticulation, filing fusion and precision fusion. Participants leave with a set of samples for future reference and endless inspiration. Prerequisite: Fabrication 1 or experience. ALAN REVERE is the Academy’s founder and director.
