Fold forming can create incredibly beautiful shapes but hollow folded forms can be too flexible for practical purposes. Like the deck of a large ship deck, “decking” makes open forms stronger and can be used to fortify any hollow metal shape making it a very transferable skill. Expand on your basic knowledge of fold forming with more complex patterns including wire scoring and hollow fold-forms. Learn to “deck” your forms to create rigidity, turning these fantastic organic shapes into more functional vessels. Some advanced soldering techniques will be demonstrated as soldering a deck onto a hollow form is no easy task. Basic fold forming and soldering skills required.
