Mon – Fri 10.00 – 17.00
In the fine metalwork workshop, students will receive technical and practical advice in the realisation of their own projects. In the process, they will gain extensive knowledge of the diverse properties of predominantly non-ferrous metals and the methods of working metals with tools and machines resulting from them. The spectrum includes reductive and non-reductive machining, for instance, sawing, drilling, filing, bending, finishing of edges, various types and techniques of soldering and possibilities for working metal surfaces. Further techniques such as bead blasting, riveting, centre grinding, raising and embossing, and those for plastic metalworking, such as CNC cutting, turning, vacuum moulding, silicone die-casting and making of wax models will be learned as necessary during project work. The necessary basic skills with reference to material-specific properties will be conveyed in the context of introductory courses taking place regularly. There will be close constructive collaboration with other workshops.
