Add dimension quickly and consistently to your metalwork by using a hydraulic press. It is ideal for making forms with patterned metal, building a production line, beginning a chasing project and much more! This is a fun and easy way to add texture, unique shapes and dimension to your art work. You will learn how to make a die using various materials. We will experiment with folds, cuts, and holes while using tons of pressure to form our metal.  Basic metal working experience recommended.
