Workshop Description:

Fold Forming with Charles Lewton-Brain
This workshop delivers the whole system of hundreds of folds in three days. You will learn to make folds in each of the main categories. Forms are derived from the natural plasticity and ductility of the metal. Shaping is extremely effcient and rapid – many forms are complete in three to seven minutes. Tools are simple: fingers, hammer, anvil and mill. Complex relief forms are made from sheets of metal often in one annealing. Forms made with this method resemble chased constructed and soldered forms and can be made with most metals, including steel. Charles Lewton-Brain invented fold-forming, a completely new way of forming sheet metal quickly into wonderful 3-D shapes and textures, most from single sheets of metal without any soldering.
