A student concentrating in metalsmithing will first be introduced to the area at the 200 level following foundation classes through the use of materials and tools necessary to create objects in metals. Students will be exposed to the techniques of raising, planishing, casting, forging, soldering and metal fabrication. Metalsmithing majors will concentrate on studio problem solving based on their skills, interests and objectives. Personal inventiveness within the discipline is encouraged.
