Cold Forging Non-Ferrous Metals
JF1712 July 28, 2012 (10 AM - 5 PM) Saturday (Metals Studio, Mill Building)
The ancient art of cold forging involves stretching metal with controlled hammer blows against an anvil or stake. Topics covered in this one-day workshop include: properties of non-ferrous metals, annealing the work-hardened metal between workings to maintain malleability, types of hammers and when to use them, making the metal move where you want it to, plus a variety of related demonstrations. Applications for this technique include flatware, bracelets, jewelry and object components. Students will explore hammering sample pieces to grasp the technique and if time allows produce a simple cuff bracelet. No previous experience is required (but knowledge of how to light an acetylene torch is helpful). A studio/materials fee of $30 is due at time of registration.
