Foldforming is a fantastic technique for turning sheet metal into dramatically textured forms, like cuffs, stars, flowers and leaves. This technique combines origami and metalwork to make beautiful surfaces on jewelry by repeatedly folding and unfolding sheet in different patterns. Anat will also demonstrate how to add more texture with some of her favorite tools.

Students will learn the techniques for folding, forging, and annealing as they make a foldformed cuff, earrings, pendant and more in this fun 1 day workshop.

Techniques taught:
• Annealing
• Fold Forming
• Forging
• Techniques for adding texture to metal

All materials included and use of tools to complete the projects. Each student has their own jewelry bench to work at during class.
