What to expect?
This will be my attempt to share what it's like to learn the art of foldforming from Charles Lewton-Brain, its inventor. I was fortunate to be here last year, too. So I know in advance that the conference will be off the charts fantastic.
Charles is a world-renowned goldsmith and spellbinding educator. Think part MacGyver, part Mythbusters, and part Leonardo da Vinci.
I’m the live blogger, yes, but also a participating student. As the conference unfolds, I’ll write about what’s happening and share photos. Hopefully some video clips, too. No streaming, but I’ll put up reasonably frequent updates (my goal is every hour or two) and I promise not to forget you.
The easy stuff will go up in real time during the day Aug 3-6. I usually post to my blog weekly, so after I get home I'll sort through trickier content and share a bit more on my remaining three posts this month.
Yes! I'd really like to hear from you on the blog, especially during the conference. Please post your comments, questions, and impressions. Your ideas may help guide my blogging topics, so don't be shy. When you do, include your email address (it will not show up publicly) and you'll be entered into a random drawing to win a prize.
I don't have prizes picked out yet, so stay tuned on that.
I think that's it for now. More very soon!

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
