In this Intermediate-level workshop, students will design and construct a keepsake locket or container employing a flat hinge and a crisply closing clasp (that’s hard to say!). This exploratory workshop will introduced students to using a hydraulic press and Matrix Dies for creating locket cases and box lids, which can preserve elaborate rolling mill textures or pierced patterns. Basic hinge systems, clasps and design considerations will be investigated during the construction of these mechanical hollow forms. Prerequisite: The Beginning Series workshops or equivalent experience is required.
