Smarter vs. Stronger with Rob Stern

$350.00Member Price: $325.00


May-1-2, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

This two day class will address the efficiency issues of utilizing a team to produce your ideas and designing for fabrication with adhesives to champion scale in your work. Special methods such a mold blowing multiples and assembling them with minor cold working and easy to use glass epoxies will open your eyes and minds to the ease of growing the size and application potential of your work. We will realize a complex sculpture together in a couple of days to prove the point. To learn more about Rob, visit his website.

The class is open to two teams of two students each. The class may work together at times as a group. When enrolling you will be asked to verify your partner. Each team will have their own bench, tools, and pipes to use during the class. Each student will be required to have their own blow hose. Common touch surfaces will be routinely clean during class, and masks will be required.

Each day, class will break for lunch. On Sunday lunch will be provided. If you have dietary restrictions, please provide your own lunch on Sunday. Lunch may be pizza, Jimmy John’s, or banh mi sandwiches.
