fold forming 

Coming Soon 

On this one-day course, through demonstration and practice, you will make a diverse range of fold forms.

There are a number of types of fold forms which we will explore, some are about the creases left from folding and their interplay, and others are about three-dimensional, curving, spiralling forms.
Most fold forms are made in thin sheet, through the folding techniques the pieces gain strength and are very robust yet light forms.
The emphasis of the course is on experimentation through copper exploration - expect lots of hammering, malleting, milling and annealing!

“The St Albans School of Jewellery Is a Wonderful Environment to Learn and Practice This Art Form”

“I’ve been studying with Martin and Tracy for a few months. Jewellery is a hobby, for me. It brings together a perfect mix of creativity and technical manual skills. The St Albans School of Jewellery is a wonderful environment to learn and practice this art form in their fully equipped jewellery studio and using the wide range of available tools under the expert guidance of Martin and Tracy.”

“It’s Been Great to Learn a Completely New Skill and to Make One-Off Pieces of Jewellery”

“Signed up for classes with Martin and Tracy at their studio/workshop in St Albans three years ago and have been attending one morning a week most of the time since then. It’s been great to learn a completely new skill and to make one-off pieces of jewellery for myself and the family – including a simple gold wedding ring for my son when he got married last year. It’s fun and addictive – and my Wednesdays wouldn’t be the same without it.”

"Just wanted to send a big thank you to you and Martin for making the jewellery class yesterday do thoroughly enjoyable. Both Janice and I really enjoyed the relaxed but professional approach and we're delighted with our final product. I am so glad I choose this course as a gift to mark our special birthdays and I have no doubt that I will be back in the future. Once again, thank you both."
