[Workshop] Fold-forming workshops this summer


#1

Hi All,

I am doing two fold-forming workshops this summer.

One workshop is at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary,
http://acad.ab.ca/, Mon-Thursday July 2-5th.

Call 403-284-7640 for registration or email
extendedstudies@acad.ca. There are college dorms next door to ACAD,
and you get to come to my house for a glass of wine and a visit at
the end of the workshop. The workshop is carefully timed to end so
that the next day is the gigantic Stampede parade and Calgary goes
into full party mode for ten days with the Calgary Stampede. EXJw

A workshop description:

Charles Lewton-Brain invented fold forming, which is now
internationally recognized as a completely new way to work metal.
Forms are derived from the natural plasticity and ductility of the
metal. Shaping is extremely efficient and rapid - many forms are
complete in 3-7 minutes. Tools are simple: fingers, hammer, anvil and
mill. Complex relief forms are made from sheets of metal often in one
annealing. Forms made with this method resemble chased constructed
and soldered forms and can be made with most metals, including steel.

The second fold-forming workshop is at Metalwerx in Mass. 25 July -
29 July 2007 (http://www.metalwerx.com/workshop/132)
