[Workshop] [Denver] Two Cynthia Eid workshops


#1

Cynthia Eid Teaches Creative Metal Corrugation and Forming in Denver
for Three Days from Wednesday, April 25th thru Friday, April 27th

Use of the Microfold Brake creates corrugated textures in metal and
offers opportunities to create exciting new forms and textures to use
in the fabrication of jewelry. Corrugation results in lightweight but
strong forms and with the price of metals today that is a great
thing. We will use the microfold brake and thin gauge metal (sterling
or copper) to create many different textures to be used alone or
incorporated into your jewelry.

During this workshop Cynthia will teach the techniques and textural
possibilities of manipulating metal with pliers, fingers, rolling
mills, the Corrugation Compressor, hammers, and discuss what can be
done with the hydraulic press. You will have plenty of opportunity to
practice and experiment with these processes and to see how these
corrugated/folded elements can be incorporated into finished pieces.

Cost for this workshop is $360. If you want more or to
sign up email Susan Bucknam at [susan at talismandesign dot com] or
in the USA call 303-803-5683.

Cynthia Eid Teaches Fold and Shell Forming in Denver for Three Days
from Monday, April 30th thru Wednesday May 2nd

Fold forming takes advantage of metal’s malleability and ductility
to create light, strong, complex, three-dimensional jewelry as well
as larger works. Forms can be made quickly with minimal tools, such
as hammers and fingers and the rolling mill. The vocabulary of forms
is large and continually developing, with new inventions and
discoveries.

Shell forming is a way to create three dimensional structures for
jewelry from flat sheet metal. Using one hard tool, usually a hammer,
and one resilient tool, a wood or plastic form, one can rapidly form
sheet metal into desired shapes. The structural strength gained
through these techniques allows us to use thinner metals, for lighter
jewelry.

Students will explore the fundamentals of sheet metal behavior and
gain an understanding of the relationship between technique, tools
and resulting forms. Specific techniques will include synclastic
sinking, anticlastic raising and methods to make transitions from one
form to another resulting in more complex structures.

Cost for this workshop is $360. If you want more or to
