The fifth installment of filming from the ACC's Arrowmont School Workshops, June 1-8, 1971. Metalsmith Ron Pearson continues his workshop and conversation with a small group of students. Using his own small pieces as props, Pearson explains the techniques used to curve, strengthen, and lengthen metal pieces. In the next segment, ceramicist Michael Cardew centers a large piece of clay and begins to manipulate it. Then, the video revisits Walter Nottingham in his burlap workshop where students continue to resolve and complicate their fabric sculptures. Next, students participate in Alma Lesch's fabric workshop by overlaying swatches in a collage technique. Finally, textile artist Meda Parker Johnson leads a classroom conversation on the properties of direct dyes, direct acid dyes, and fiber reactive dyes.
