Fold Forming Fun with April Bower
Copper, tools, anvils & torches supplied, students bring eye protection, apron and their own hand tools if they wish. Metal shears come in handy.
Fold forming is a process developed by Charles Lewton-Brain that exploits the natural elastic & plastic qualities of metal to create unique three dimensional forms using simple hand tools. It is a fun discovery process to find what works for you and which things you like. Lots of hammering and annealing and kinda dirty. A very beginning student can have good results.
In this workshop, you will learn the basics and take home a pair of earrings and/ or a bracelet in copper. Tools & metal will be supplied. $95
