3-day Workshop with Judy McCaig

February 3-5 2023

Duration: 24 hours

Rivets of different types are used to connect two or more separate pieces together of the same material or not, elements that cannot be soldered or reheated.

Although riveting is one of the oldest methods for joining pieces together, today its importance as an assembly technique is greater than ever.It is a simple, strong mechanical way that allows the connection of distinct layers and fragments or fragile elements; stones, ceramic or glass items in low relief or in 3D compositions, be it mobile or static. Rivets are an ideal option for joining together recycled items, found objects (objet trouvé) and natural elements.

During this course, students will have the chance to learn the new techniques, make and experiment with the various types of rivets and their uses, as well as practice on the design, composition, construction and finish of pieces. Thus, all participants are encouraged to explore the expressive possibilities that riveting offers in order to stimulate their personal creativity.
