Forming Floral Forms
November 14, 2019 – November 17, 2019
In this workshop students explore sheet metal forming and cold forging techniques in non-ferrous metals. Looking to the natural world for inspiration, participants will create a variety of organic elements, such as flower and plant forms, to be incorporated into jewelry or sculpture. Utilizing stakes, hammers and anvils to create shapes, you will manipulate metal into curves and lines. You will also use soldering and cold connections. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $400
