Hammer & Hardie Intensive Workshop
In this intensive 2-day workshop, students learn through detailed instruction how to cut materials using the hammer and hardie. Using materials such as stone, marble and smalti, students will gain skills to cut more quickly with a minimal amount of waste. Students examine specific characteristics of materials such as the hardness or structure of the stone and smalti and how to reduce the size of natural materials. Students also learn about proper maintenance, sharpening and care of the hammer and hardie tools. This class is intended for all levels, from beginning to those who may already have experience but would like to brush up on their techniques. You are welcome to bring your own hammers and materials if you wish.
All materials are included. No prerequisite.
“Everything in this course was perfect for me. I have renewed energy for my mosaics. I am looking forward to the advanced Smalti class to enhance the skills and lessons from this class. It really was an excellent course!” – M.B., Michigan
