    A Study in Leaves - Fold Forming and Texturing Copper

    Dates/times:

    June 1st and 8th, 11:30AM-2:30PM

    Instructor: Christie Harris

    In this “make and take” class, participants will explore fold forming and texturing copper to create organic leaf shapes. Participants will force the copper to patina, choosing from a variety of techniques, and finish their jewelry pieces into an earrings and pendant set. We’ll be using a mapp gas torch to anneal our pieces. Participants should be comfortable with the idea of holding and firing a torch. This is a two-session class.

    Key learning points:

    ·        Cutting copper base metal

    ·        Annealing

    ·        Fold forming

    ·        Using texturing (and other) hammers

    ·        Exploring patina

    ·        Simple wire wraps

    ·        Using small hand tools – pliers, loop making, cutters, hole punch

    SAFETY: Participants should bring gloves to prevent cuts from sharp metal. Long hair should be tied back.
