What you'll learn in this metalsmithing class:

Fold Forming is a system of rapid forming using thin sheets of metal which are folded and repeatedly forged to reveal dramatic three-dimensional forms and textures. This is an excellent technique to learn about the elasticity and ductility of metal by working with its natural properties. 

Anticlastic Forming is a dynamic method of manipulating metal sheet by hammering it into two distinct curvatures, which are opposite to one another. Learn to use sinusoidal stakes and delrin hammers to form a wide range of natural shapes into reflective, corporeal cuffs. This is another great way to explore metal characteristics to achieve the results you want by metal forming.

School Notes:
Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, while we are a Jewish community center, nothing about our art classes are religious and all are welcome in our building at all times.
