Metal Creations Inspired by Nature (Ages 12-14)
Create beautiful metal forms inspired by nature with a technique called Fold Forming, developed in the early 1980s by Charles Lewton Brain. Fold forming allows us to use metal's unique characteristics by following what the metal naturally wants to do. We will cover at least three different folds and some of their possibilities. Experience a hands-on exploratory dive into organic dimensions with copper.
