This exciting technique allows you to manipulate, fold and hammer thin sheets of metal into fabulous new 3 dimensional shapes and organic forms.

Techniques covered in this class include:
– Line folds & T-folds
– Scored folds
– Hammering technique
– Fold forming with a rolling mill
– Creating wavy spines
– Leaf forms, Star folds & Rueger folds
– Tapered tubes
… and much more!
