Moving Metal: Fold Forming
Date: April 13
Time: 10 am – 3 pm
Registration Deadline: April 10
Fold Forming is an exciting technique of metalworking where metal is folded, annealed (softened with a torch), and unfolded, creating beautiful textured 3-dimensional forms. There will be demonstrations and hands-on work in copper using hammers, anvils, and our hands in this workshop. We will experiment with flameworking colors, annealing, texturizing, and learning to move metal. You will leave with several finished pieces.
