I am giving two fold-forming workshops this summer. As well the
Seattle Metals Guild is having one in late August.
June 30-July 3 2008, 4 Days
Alberta College of Art and Design
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Fold-Forming: This workshop delivers the whole system of hundreds of
folds in four days. You will learn to make folds in each of the main
categories. Forms are derived from the natural plasticity and
ductility of the metal. Shaping is extremely efficient and rapid -
many forms are complete in three to seven 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 dates are planned so that you can
come to Calgary for the workshop, then on July 4th it is fantastic
Stampede Parade and Calgary embarks on 10 days of party action with
the Calgary Stampede.
