  • Length1 hour 45 minutes 9 seconds
  • Description

    Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain invented foldforming and demonstrates the technique in this video. Foldforming is a system of metalworking that uses the metal's nature to rapidly make shapes that resemble chased and constructed pieces, often reminiscent of natural objects such as leaves, shells, and flowers. Folding and working sheet metal is demonstrated. This Ganoksin video shares folds not shown elsewhere - this is new information. Learn how quick this method can be once you learn to let the metal do the work for you. Folds addressed include a review of line folds and T-folds. It includes forged line folds, Rueger folds, Pleated folds, Alternate T-folds, legs pinned and free, using table inserts and the Romero fold. (We also recommend the book Foldforming by Charles Lewton-Brain to take your skills even further.) Filmed in full HD 1080p.
