This class combines steel and copper to make a unique wall hook that will definitely turn some heads. We’ll have two instructors on hand and split the class in half. One half of the class will make their steel wall hook while the other half will make their fold-formed copper tile. Then, we’ll switch places. The final assembly with copper rivets brings the whole piece together.
Please note: fold-forming is very open to improvisation and your piece will be unique!
Skills covered include tapering, turning on the horn and upsetting the rivets. You’ll get an introduction to annealing copper and learn about work hardening. We’ll demonstrate some fundamental fold forming techniques and discuss design considerations.
This is a super fun project and successful students will take home a piece that’s ready to mount on the wall.
Prerequisite: any Discovery class
This class runs from 9am – 3pm with a break for lunch.
