In this workshop, students will learn to create a 3-dimensional metal form using 3D-printed dies and a hydraulic press, then build layers of vitreous enamel on the form using shifting and wet packing techniques. Students will access premade 3D-printed dies in various designs to press 20/22 GA copper. In addition, the instructor will introduce the concept of CAD/CAM and share knowledge about the process of making two-part forming dies and more.
