Have you ever wondered if metal could be folded like origami?

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.

$135.00 for members of the PA Guild of Craftsmen, $150.00 for non-members $35.00 materials fee payable to me at the time of class
