Boat folds and books
We began the morning of Day 3 with a review demo of the beautiful Romero fold, which is the leaf with a spine running through the middle, followed by how to make a feather. Next was a forged Good fold, which was actually new because yesterday's Good fold was made in the rolling mill.
Boat folds came next with a bunch of variations. The boat is another base form, like the star shape. The second shot in the slideshow is a basic one.
We've been through cross folds too... I'll get something out there when I can.
Charles also shared a list of his favorite books for metals. I snagged that for us:
The lunch lecture today is Small Scale Photography. Perfect, I really need this! Meet you back here soon.

I am enjoying the progress and all the photos from class. I like the photos of the boat folds. They make you smile because they look like a huge metal mouth. Your pinwheel fold from the earlier day looks fabulous and a has nicely delicate edging to it. Thanks for blogging about the class so us 'long distance artists' can view what you are doing.

These are wonderful! I am so loving your blogging about the class. I really wanted to attend but was unable to, so it's great doing it vicariously through your posts & pics. Thank you!!

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.
See how it all
