Workshop for Ages 11-14: Metal Embossing

Youth/Teen Workshop Series for Ages 11 - 14

February 20, 2021

Explore the design process and material properties through metal embossing in this live workshop! The malleability of metal allows it to deform from pressure, allowing for infinite texturing and mark making opportunities. Embossing is used by artists, engineers and creators of all kinds -- bring your own flair to the workshop, and make your project uniquely you.
