Credits: 3

This course offers a focused investigation into putting things together mainly using hand tools with minor usage of heavy machinery. Students will be introduced to various joining methods including various wood joineries, basketry, riveting, sewing, weaving, and other cold connections. This technique-driven course also provides various traditional form giving methods such as wood bending, wood carving, metal bending, sheet metal forming etc. This course will allow students to re-defined their relationship between hand and materials and it will encourage them to find a meaningful connection with the making process. Each student will explore their own unique way of making and investigate themes of their interest in line with how it's made. This course will examine the work of Martin Puryear, Richard Deacon, El anatsui, Nick Cave, Alexander Calder, Judith Scott, as well as many others.

This course fuses the digital to the real world. Making sculptures that range from small-scale objects to both proposed and realized installations, students will utilize 21st-century means of drawing at the intersection of the Parsons Making Center. Through Computer Aided Drawing (CAD), rendering, rapid prototyping, and a headfirst dive into the E4 metal shop, students will make their way through their concepts while exploring a range of artists and practitioners who employ similar literacies. This course will examine the work of Baseera Khan, Grace Lee Lawrence, David Howe, Jonathan Brand, David Hammonds, The Ben Keating Foundry, Maker Space NYC, as well as many others.

Credits: 3

The energy in this class will be put towards fabrication techniques in object making and the possibilities and permutations of mold making. Each student will have the opportunity to engage in planning long-term projects, advice on material sourcing, technical construction and then the duplication of the constructed object with mold making. This course will embolden a structural form of creating that will support and inform a strong sustainable studio practice, translate ideas into a 3D dimension and expand on experimentation with raw materials. Throughout we will reflect on interdisciplinary making styles from the following artists: Maria Hupfield, Emily Johnson, Raven Chacon, Ursula Johnson, Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, Hiroshi Shafer, Natalie Ball, Jeane Silverthorne and a few others.

This studio course explores how materials and fabrication techniques can tell a story. Utilizing various materials, such as up-cycled, found, or traditional, we'll delve into narration, place, and time, literally and metaphorically. Throughout the course, we will be honing practical skills and delving into various materials and media through shop time, discussions, readings, and critiques. Our focus will be on materials and contemporary topics. Students leave the course with enhanced technical skills, a deeper appreciation of materials, and their ability to communicate. We will look at artist such as: Felix Gonzales-Torres, Subodh Gupta, Ai Wei Wei, Lygia Clark, Nick Cave, Do Ho Suh, Simone Leigh. Tehching Hsieh, Cildo Meireles, Janet Cardiff, Rachel Whiteread, Kristen Lucas, Meret Oppenheim, Wolfgang Laib.
