Well here it is the early-morning after. Four jam-packed days flew by faster than you can believe. We're not live anymore, but yesterday got away from me and there is some fill-in to do. Let's catch up with another post or two today, and then weekly through August as I go through notes and video. Does that sound like a plan?
First of all, wow. Congratulations to recipients of the 2012 Lewton-Brain Foldform Award. Click that link and feast your eyes. Absolutely stunning work.
Charles began the day by asking which folds we'd like to see demonstrated again, as review. Each morning begins this way. We pick up samples from the huge collection on the table and Charles works through them one by one.
Today's requests included an extruded line fold, a chased t-fold (chasing on air), boat variations, and that beautiful cross-fold/T-fold combination. Charles also gave us a ruffle demo, reviewed scoring/bending methods, and talked more about patinas.
Just a note... through all of these demos, Charles often hops online to show us artists' work that uses the particular fold or fold family he is teaching. It really helps with perspective and application ideas.

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
