Description

Anticlastic & Fold Forming in Metal (Intermediate Level)
Date: April 18 - May 30, 2018 (Wednesdays, 6 weeks)
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Lynda Lou MacIntyre
Fee: $90 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $104 plus HST (Non Members)

In this six week course, you will learn the basics of anticlastic raising & fold forming. This process allows you to create exceptionally strong, flexible, lightweight, and organic-looking forms. In anticlastic forming a flat sheet of metal is shaped by compressing its edges and stretching the center so that the surface develops two curves at right angles to each other like a horse saddle. The technique is excellent for bracelets & rings.

You do not need a great deal of metalworking experience to take this class, but beginner skills & some experience with hammer forging is helpful. You will create a range of forms for you to incorporate into your designs or use as stand alone pieces. (No class on May 9)
