An Artist of Metals and More...
Corrina Sephora began her life-long interest in metalworking at the age of five in her father’s workshop, where she was introduced to the art of boat building. In 1995, Corrina went on to receive her BFA in Sculpture and Metalsmithing from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She then moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she has since established her own studio, specializing in sculpture, furniture, and architectural works.
Corrina's personal work often uses the imagery of boats and ships as metaphors for life experiences, and as story-telling tools. The boat form is a vessel and magical symbol for transition, while the ocean represents mystery and power, and the ebb and flow of the past and present.
In 2005, Corrina received her MFA in Sculpture from Georgia State University. She has taught on the college level, and presented at national and international blacksmithing workshops and conferences. Her prestigious metalworking awards include “Best in Show” from Annette Cone-Skelton of MOCA GA, Silver Award from Icarus International, Silver Sculpture Award from NOMMA, and a number of other awards. Corrina’s metalwork is on permanent display in Atlanta at the Martin Luther King National Historic Site, The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, King and Spaulding’s Contemporary Art Collection, Temple Sinai, and many private collections internationally. She continues to exhibit in museums, galleries, and public art venues.
I liked the class but would like additional classes.
The best class I have taken! I am so grateful for this Weekend Welding Workshop experience. Corrina is an incredibly talented and accomplished mixed media artist, so it is special to be able to learn to form her. What you create is entirely up to you with guidance from Corrina and Richard. They both are welcoming and make you feel at ease. I am still in awe that I was able to create this vision I had for several years with no experience. Thank you Corrina for creating this workshop. I will be back!
Went to this class to wondering If I would like welding as much as I wanted to learn how. Left knowing that I’m going to love learning how to weld. Gabi was very good at explaining welding concepts and processes to the class. Also her encouragement and praise to each student resulted in all of us making successful welds. Great hands on experience I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn how to weld.
Very informative and a lot of fun! Actually did some welding!
Great personal attention. A great artist to mentor you through your project. Corrina is a lot of fun to be around, don’t miss this class.
Really enjoyed it, went in very nervous and left with a lot of confidence
Absolutely do this course if you have any interest in metal working! I built a set of skewers to cook things over fire. They are awesome! Corrina is a wonderful instructor. I had all the creative freedom to do what I wanted and all the assistance, both creative and otherwise, I could have asked for.
Gabi did a great job teaching the class. It was truly fun and educational! I would highly recommend this for other welding beginners.
So much fun and hands on. Learned a lot in 2 hours and went home with a piece of art that I welded. Would highly recommend this class.
Gabi does an amazing job teaching the Intro to Welding class. They are very patient and explains everything in a way that someone new to welding can understand. They are also very good at making you feel comfortable in a situation that warrants being a bit nervous. The class was a lot of fun. Highly Recommended!
