What you'll do

Fold-forming is a exciting technique where metal is folded, repeatedly forged, and unfolded creating beautiful organic forms. Explore the many possibilities this technique has to offer using simple tools like hammers, anvils, vices and your fingers. Imagine yourself in a supportive and creative environment with your friends at one of the largest artist colonies. I’ll guide you with creative and fun instruction and you’ll jump right in to: *Learn how to stretch and move metal by hammering to start shaping your copper forms like leaves, pods, pinched and sculptural metal & then some! *Play with uniquely texturing copper with your handiwork. *Learn how to anneal copper (using a torch to soften the metal). *Learn to flame work copper colors (using fire). *Sanding areas to create depth and contrast on your metal forms. *Shape and hammer brass to create a decorative wire hanging for your pieces. *You will have the option to add protective metal sealer for a glossy finish. *Take home your beautiful fold-formed pieces! *Perfect experience for an individual, group of friends and couples. No experience is necessary.
