FORGING & METAL FABRICATING with sculptor JAMES GARVEY. Work with fire, anvil and steel to learn how to forge metal. 



Saturdays 10 am - 1 pm.
Monthly fee: $130.



James Garvey has worked with the New York City Ironworkers Union to replicate the Statue of Liberty’s armature bars. For several months, James would observe the personal effects of the visitors who  watched the artisans at Liberty Island. This setting is what inspired  James to search for and bring meaningful street furniture to the public, creating functional works of art.

James moved on to open a Tribeca studio/gallery where he designed and created the innovative and functional forms of round bars, JG bends, and  tapers.  These forms can be seen in all his designs of hardware,  furniture and street fixtures residing in and around New York City,  including the settees and tables at the NYPD substation on Washington  Street, the Lariat Rail in Central Park (West 97th Street), the “School  of Spirits Gate” at the Dwight School (89th Street and Columbus Avenue),  and the fourteen Lariat Seat Loops at the 33rd Street station of the  IRT subway line.

Currently, James is working on a variety of private and public projects  in the tri-state area, in addition to teaching at the League’s Vytlacil  Campus.  To learn more about James and his art, please see the video, Objects For Personal Ceremony by Fred Gilbert at www.JamesGarvey.net.
