Holy Toledo. This video took 90 minutes to upload. I'll try to post a clip each night or early morning, but after I get home it will be easier to share more of these.
Below, Charles demonstrates a (mixed) star fold that is hammered half on the folded edge and half on the open edge. It takes place midway through yesterday's hands-on session. He had demonstrated quite a few star variations earlier in the day, and this one is a review, by request, to help us practice.
August 2012 on SueLacy Wired is dedicated to the 5th annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference on Foldforming, taking place Aug 3-6 at the Center for Metal Arts in downstate NY. To view the series, click category "5th Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference" in the far right column on this page.

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
