Fold-Forming with the Master

This workshop delivers more folds in one-day than you can possibly imagine! You will learn to make folds in each of the main categories. Forms are derived from the natural plasticity and ductility of the metal. Shaping is extremely efficient and rapid – many forms are complete in three to seven minutes. Tools are simple: fingers, hammer, anvil and mill. Complex relief forms are made from sheets of metal often in one annealing. Forms made with this method resemble chased, constructed and soldered forms and can be made with most metals, including steel. Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain has trained, studied and worked in Germany, Canada and the United States to learn the skills he uses. You know that Fold Forming book you love? He wrote it!
