McAleer on that subject. I'll append the blurb from the flier below.

What I will teach
I will show you how to get those waves AND MORE into YOUR metal work!
This is a FUN hands-on workshop where workshop participants will
learn how to create
elements and achieve a variety of exciting surface textures while
exploring an assortment of NEW (and old) corrugation tools used in
Advantages of each tool will be discussed and you will be shown how
to create an array of surface patterns such as multiple patterning,
Pattern crimping, pattern trapping, and corrugami: great for texture
lovers, jewelers, metalsmiths, beadmakers and glass fusing artists!
Important corrugation essentials, tips, tricks, and technical
observations about using corrugation and construction methods will
be revealed. Trish will demonstrate how you can use corrugation with
other metalsmithing techniques such as: repousse, corrugami forms,
corrucones, hydraulic die-forming, and wax working. Participants
will be shown construction of an assortment of hand formed elements
and sculptural forms that are totally unique to this process.
The workshop will also cover connecting and using corrugated
elements in your work. Irregular
surface conditions create a special challenge but unique cold
connection solutions will be shown.
