Interest in Anticlastic Raising?


#1

Dang.

Between Fold Forming and Anticlastic raising, Calgary just might be
the place to be for the metal bender.

Question to all, is there a sudden interest in Anticlastic raising
developing?

My interest is in larger scale works.

Where in Calgary? I love the plasticity of metal and have taken shell

forming class.

Fold Forming is offered in Calgary at the Alberta College of Art and
Design. The course is taught by Charles Lewton-Brain who is the
inventor of fold forming. I took this course from Charles several
years ago and I highly recommend it. This summer, the course runs
from June 26 to 29 and costs $465 cdn. Call (403) 284-7640 to
register.

Hi Susan, Since I invented it I would suggest that the fold-forming
class I am giving the last week of June might be among the best…

Call 403-284-7640 to get registration at the Alberta
College of Art and Design. Guylaine Cyr is teaching the anticlastic
one this summer as well in our summer program.

Best

Susan,

The classes I am aware of are:

1.Anticlastic /Synclastic forming at Alberta College of Art and
Design. From David Popham: course number EXJW061X1, May 5,6 & 7,
Gulaine Cyr, instructor. (http://www.acad.ab.ca) This was posted on
Orchid on 4/4/2006

  1. Fold Forming worshop with Charles Lewton-Brain at his studio.
    June 26th thru the 29th. (brainnet@telus.net) This was posted on
    orchid around March 25th.

I am planning on taking Charles’ class at the end of June. The
Anticlastic work will have to wait a while. Sure do want to go to
Brian Smith’s school in Ireland for a Michael Good workshop one day
soon. The deer antler thing works.

I was introduced to Fold Forming in a workshop by Betty Helen Longi
too. Changed my work completely. Now I want to change the scale that
I am working in. There is a 3’ x 10’ sheet of copper begging to be
dinged.

Hope this helps. Do you live anywhere near Asheville, NC?

Thanks for the great info.

Charles, I have the form to fill out for the class in June. I have
always loved your work!

Bill, I live in the Nashville, TN area. I took shell forming with
Betty Helen at her Getaway workshops at her studio in NC.

I appreciate the feedback guys!!
