Charles Lewton-Brain is credited with inventing fold forming, a metalsmithing technique recognized the world over as the only new, original innovation in metal working in millennia. Fold forming uses the metal’s flexibility to make complex forms resembling chased, constructed and soldered shapes. You can rapidly achieve results is three to five minutes from single sheets of metal! The tools are simple: fingers, hammers, mallets, anvil, vise and rolling mill.
In three days of demonstration and practice, students will learn to achieve complex high-relief forms. The workshop will use thin gauge copper but these techniques may be used with many metals including gold and silver.
