Turn sheet metal into wearable art with the basic fold-forming technique called the line-fold.


By folding and unfolding sheet metal, you can quickly turn it into wonderful 3-D shapes and textures.In this 6 hour workshop, you’ll be introduced to the line-fold and make cuffs from copper sheet metal. Heat and other patinas will also be discussed and may be applied to your cuffs. Line folds and and their variations are the foundation for many fold-forming techniques.


It is recommended that all students use copper to learn the technique. Advanced students may opt to create a cuff from Sterling silver. Sorry, but due to the nature of the metals, beginners and intermediate students must use copper. A $20 materials fee is paid directly to the instructor.
