Jewelry Class Description

Fold Forming

Prerequisite: No experience necessary

Bring new and exciting depth to your pieces by learning to use fold forming techniques that take advantage of the inherent plastic properties of metal. Using a vice and hammer you will explore bending, crimping, overlapping and stretching sheet metal to create beautiful forms which will add interest and dimension to your pieces. All levels welcome!

All students are encouraged to find their own voice in the creative process with instructor guidance as we don’t work off cookie cutter models.
