3-Day Workshop

Spoons

instructed by

Martha Fitzmier



June 10 - June 12, 2020

Wednesday - Friday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm daily

Create Something Useful!  Each student will design and fabricate a spoon using one of their own spoons as a model.  Martha will demonstrate using thermoplastic pellets to make a die to be used in the hydraulic press to form the bowl of the spoon.  Handles will be fabricated from various forms and shapes of silver depending on each student's choice.  Martha will demonstrate different ways to apply the handle depending on the material chosen.


Materials required:  Each student will bring enough 18 gauge silver sheet to make 2 or 3 spoon bowls using a favorite spoon of their own as a model.  Handles can be constructed of various forms of silver and found objects for embellishments.


Dallas Vinson will have several kinds of heavy gauge wire available for students to choose from as well as the thermoplastic and 18g. silver sheet.


Basic soldering, sawing and fabricating skills required.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Martha Fitzmier is a metalsmith, artist and educator.  Following careers in literacy education, educational cocnsulting, and selling antiques, she took one course in metalsmithing and was captivated by the concept of creating beautiful things from metal.

Martha's interest in metals began with creating art jewelry, and her focus quickly expanded to include flatware and hollowware.  Recently Martha has been exploring deep draw hydraulic press forming and experimenting with its unique possibilities for both hollowware and jewlery design.

Martha has served on the Board of Directors of the Metal Arts Guild of Georgia (MAGG).  In the summer of 2018, Martha and her husband moved to Verona, WI.  By the fall of 2018, she completed the construction of a fully equipped teaching studio -- a welcoming setting for students to collaborate, learn new techniques, and hone their skills.

Martha is currently a board member of the Madison Art Guild and is offering workshops for students in the Madison area.  See her website marthafitzmier.com for more details.
