Hi Elizabeth, May I suggest fold forming. One could use copper, brass
or aluminium for starters. The reason for my suggestion is that, as
its originator Charles Lewton-Brain states, it self-teaches quickly
quickly about processes instead of techniques. Neat shapes can be
created very quickly.
I’m now starting to take digital photos of my work (play, really) if
you are interested in seeing some examples.
David Popham, Please, please send rain!
