Hi All,

    Currently teaching in San Francisco, a course on catches and
    findings. There is a foldforming course coming up here at Revere on

    Fold-Forming

    This workshop delivers the whole system of hundreds of folds in two
    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 efficient 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.

    Fold-Forming:

    This workshop delivers the whole system of hundreds of folds in four
    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 efficient and rapid many forms are

    the Rocky Mountains. Come for the class and stay for the Nature! Note
    that this is carefully planned so that Friday the 6th is the Stampede
    Parade (3,500 horses! Bands! Floats!), the 100th celebration of the
    Calgary Stampede, Calgary's 10 day blowout party. Think cowboy Mardi
    Gras. Totally worth coming for - in addition to the most thorough
    foldforming workshop offered this year.

    FoldForming: The Next Steps

    This course is geared towards students who have experience with fold
    forming, but want to take their work to the next level by exploring
    more complex folds and realizing methods for integrating forms into
    their artwork. Come learn from the master and creator of this
    original metalsmithing technique. Executing the intricate folds can
    be tricky. Charles will spend the first day of class reviewing folds
    by student request. The afternoon will be complemented with hands-on
    time to practice making samples with instructor guidance. Fold
    forming structures and surfaces are applicable for jewelry, hollow
    ware, enameling, anodizing, and more. The focus of the second day of
    class will be to understand how to go beyond the samples to
    incorporate fold-forming concepts into finished work. Demonstrations
    include edge treatments such as upset, rolled, rolled with a wire
    inside, and decking; and reviewing approaches to looking at and
    cutting up samples to make them more interesting. Students are
    encouraged to bring examples of their work (finished or unfinished)
    so that at lunch, time can be spent giving feedback that will help
    generate ideas and methods for taking this technique to the next
    step. If there is strong interest, students will have the option of
    more forming demos on the second day, as time allows. Class
