Fold Forming Workshop


Fold Forming is a exciting technique of metalworking whereby metal is folded, repeatedly forged, and unfolded creating beautiful textured 3-dimensional organic forms. In this workshop there will be demonstration and hands-on work in copper. Explore the many possibilities this technique has to offer using simple tools like hammers, anvils and your fingers.

We will be having fun experimenting with flame working patina, practice annealing metal (softening the metal with a torch), textures, and hammering copper metal around to create organic shapes like leaves, pods and then some! You will have the opportunity to add protective gloss sealer and add decorative brass wire for hanging. You will leave with multiple finished pieces! Unleash your alchemical side and create some fabulous shapes with fold forming!

All materials and tools will be provided in this workshop! Participants must be at least 18 yrs old. No prior experience is necessary. Please sign up at least 72hours in advance.
