Raising Awareness

Raising Awareness

"Raising Awareness" is a craft-based performance that will engage the public in the history, process and product of creating metal vessels through the metalsmithing technique of raising; transforming a flat sheet of metal into a three dimensional form. A coalition of metalsmiths will work daily creating metal vessels and inviting the public to gain familiarity with metal, its working properties, and how it is formed through this process. While each smith will bring their own approach to the performance and engage the public differently, Raising Awareness seeks to bring the specific technical and tacit knowledge of metalsmithing back into the realm of vernacular understanding as it may have existed prior the 20th century.
