Frank Annighofer (CBA III/National Instructor) will guide you through the world of scrolls. You will learn something about the origin of scrolls (incl. a level 2 grille from 1765) and how to design your own scrolls. The main part then will show you in detail how to produce the various scrolls required for the level 2 grille. Story board pictures and videos will teach you how to make ribbon, fishtail, snub-end, halfpenny, and beveled leaf scrolls. An easy to make scroll form and historic scroll pictures will round off the presentation. 

John Williams (CBA III/National Instructor) will present the basics of forging and applying collars. Collars are a way of joining two pieces of metal together and can be functional and/or serve as decorative elements. For the Level II Grille, students are required to join their scrolls together with collars and have the option of joining their scrolls to the frame with even more collars. Students have the choice of doing a simple wrapped collar or something more complex. John will walk us through how to make and apply different styles of collars as well as the tooling necessary.

Presentation fulfils the CBA and ABANA level IIa curriculum requirements.
