Fold-forming is the first new technique in metal-smithing in hundreds of years. The technique is credited to Charles Lewton-Brain who taught a class on fold-forming at Creator Haven in 2017. Fold-forming exploits certain clay-like properties of sheet metal to create metal shapes through folding, forging and unfolding. Learn the basic technique and soime of the key design elements of fold-forming in this one afternoon class.
Due to the EXTENSIVE HAMMERING of metal on anvils, it is REQUIRED that you use ear protection during this class. You may bring your own or purchase disposable ear plugs from us at $1 per pair.
We’ll explore several forms and then develop them into a pair of earrings, a cuff bracelet, and as many samples as time permits!Reservations
