Beginning Foldforming Metal

Foldforming is a technique of metalworking whereby sheet metal is folded, repeatedly forged and annealed and unfolded, at which stage it generally has a dramatic new three-dimensional form. In this class, explore the technique using simple roofing copper. Foldforming allows the creation of organic shapes with strength and fluidity and lends itself to jewelrymaking or sculptural applications. Explore several ways of foldforming metal and using the forms to create earrings, pendants and more! Some materials included. Others available for purchase in class. Masks are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
