Once again, I will be teaching my Fold Forming with Hammers workshop through the PA Guild of Craftsmen at Millersville University just outside of Lancaster, PA.
January 29th, 2011 10am – 4pm
It’s $114.00 for non-members and $103.00 for members of the PA Guild. For more information or to sign up for the class, visit the Fold Forming Workshop webpage.
Fold Forming is a technique where sheet metal is folded, worked, and then unfolded. Through this process, it is possible to quickly form the metal into gorgeous 3D shapes and textures. In this workshop, students will learn some of the basic folds using hammers, a torch, and vises. By the end of the day, each student will leave with at least one fold formed copper cuff and a variety of samples.
This is a very physical technique and you will get dirty! Beginning jewelry and metalsmithing skills and a familiarity with using a torch are extremely helpful, but not required.
