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!
“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.”
