Design: A Blow by Blow Approach with Tim McCreightMonday October 12, 2009
A 90 minute LIVE recording with CRAFTCAST's host Alison Lee and instructor Tim McCreight.
This class taught by renowned jewelry artist and author of The Complete Metalsmith,Tim McCreight, focuses on the use of hammers and impact tools to design and develop form. Tim says, "A few years ago I started playing a game in the studio, using a striking motion as the preferred way to accomplish any task. Chisels replaced my sawframe; the design process depended as much on a hammer as a pencil. The process led me along paths I hadn't expected, and taught me a new appreciation for chance and spontaneity. I'd be happy to share my experience with you." This was an exciting evening with Tim, as he shared his thought process and personal images that narrate his unique creative journey.
