Jewelry/Metalsmithing majors travel to Tennessee to hone their craft
July 18, 2018
Castina Bombardo and Morgan Lloyd, VMA students in the Jewelry/Metalsmithing BFA program, were recipients of Arrowmont School of Crafts Fellows Scholarships funded by the Windgate Foundation and the VMA Jewelry/Metalsmithing area that included the one-week course fee, application fee, meals & housing in dormitory style facilities and a $300 stipend that could be used for travel and materials fee. Arrowmont makes the scholarships available to students attending an institution willing to match their scholarship offer.
Castina enrolled in the workshop Warped Wood with Jackson Martin, Assistant Professor of Art, University of North Carolina, Asheville. This class introduced to controlled warps in wood using steam-bending techniques and equipment.
Morgan chose the class Exploring Felted Forms and Surface Texture studying with Lisa Klakulak, a practicing fiber artist from Asheville, North Carolina. This workshop focused on developing an expansive understanding of hollow form sculpting as well as techniques for introducing surface texture by way of fabric fusion and free-motion stitching.
