Fold forming 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 and ways to enamel on fold formed surfaces to add lovely colors. Techniques taught include: annealing, fold forming, techniques for adding texture to metal, patina, preparing and designing pieces for enameling, fold forming fine silver, brass and copper, and enameling on fine silver. Students will pay teacher a $64 Kit Fee on the day of class for some materials—fee amount subject to change.
