September Event

Fabricators’ Tour

Thursday, September 24th, 2015 (3-5:45 pm)
Join us for an inspiring tour of studios of some very creative craftspeople.
We will be in Seattle's Georgetown, SODO, and South Park neighborhoods, all of which are hotbeds of talent and innovation.



The Boiler Room

Seattle Solstice

Studio Steel

Studio Steel
The Boiler Room was started in 1993 by Kevin Names, as a small, 1-man operation, inspired by blacksmithing and the plasticity of steel. They are now a team of craftsman with 50 years of combined experience, varying creative backgrounds and a desire to fabricate and forge work that finds the balance between form and function. They work with homeowners, business owners, architects, designers and contractors.

Seattle Solstice specializes in creating large, unique stone art pieces either with or without water as a kinetic element. Installations are typically in large, outdoor public spaces or in the gardens and courtyards of private homes. They have the ability to produce unique art and architectural elements from any type of stone, metal , and glass for these custom installations, water features, water walls or other stand-alone sculptural pieces. They also custom engineer all of the necessary components to handle the installation and infrastructure for these unique features.

Studio Steel invites you for a special studio visit with a mini bending demo. Explore a working studio by picking up a piece of steel and learning some traditional, low tech bending methods. Studio Steel fabricates contemporary and organic bespoke ironwork, architectural elements and home furnishings with copper, stainless steel and fused glass. Studio Steel is design+build and Mimi has 14 years of experience working with designers (landscape and interior), architects and individual homeowners. She also teaches welding in her gallery space.

Schedule:
3:00-3:45 Studio 1
3:45-4:00 travel
4:00-4:45 Studio 2
4:45-5:00 travel
5:00-5:45 Studio 3

Because we expect a great turn-out for this event, we will break into groups and rotate between the studios. That will ensure that everyone will have a great interaction with the artisans and will be able to move through the studio spaces easily. We will be assigning groups closer to the actual date and will provide those that sign up with their schedule and driving directions. Please remember that these are industrial spaces, so dress accordingly. For those who are interested, we will meet as a large group at 6:00 pm at a Georgetown restaurant.

The cost for this event is $30 for members and $45 for non-members. 2 CPH credits from WSNLA, 2.25 APLD credits. If you have any questions please send them to Christie Coxley at ccoxley@comcast.net.
