DATE: December 3-6 , 2015
INSTRUCTOR: Ira Sherman
MORE INFOR & REGISTER ONLINE:
Learn how to modify and interpret jewelers' fold-forming techniques in larger scale, using blacksmith and steel fabrication techniques. We will develop a variety of folded forms in 1/16 to 3/16 mild steel plate. Design pattern layout is essentially the same for fold forming in non-ferrous metals, but heavier thicknesses and larger steel objects often require high working temperatures and the specialized tools used by blacksmiths.
We will be working in teams for some of the fold openings. Students should have some experience with blacksmithing technique and completely understand the etiquette and safety requirements used in the blacksmith studio. Hands-on participation.
