Shell Formed Cuffs & Bracelets
Focus on the techniques of shell forming, forging and roll printing and fabricate a series of bracelets and cuffs from sheet metal. Learn to experiment with ways to add texture and change the form of a metal pattern with the rolling mill as well as forging. Then transform these patterns into bracelets and cuffs by synclastic, anticlastic and other forming techniques. While forming bracelet and cuff forms, gain new insight into ways to manipulate sheet metal as well as create a unique group of samples and jewelry items. Students will purchase/bring their own metal. 2 hammers from Allcraft will be recommended to purchase for use at the workshop. If you do not want to purchase hammers prior to the workshop, some rental tools are also available. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
