T-Fold Cuff

September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $45.00 +Kit fee: $15, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: This class with Liz Kennedy is an introduction to making a T- fold in sheet metal. In this beginner-level class, you will learn how to size a cuff (approximately 1″ wide) and make the T-fold (a style of foldforming), forging your metal into shape. You will learn to apply heat with a torch so the folds can be opened. You will trim, file and buff the pieces. You will form the metal into a cuff. Once completed, you can apply a patina, if desired, to give added richness and bring out the texture. Alternatively, if you do not want a cuff you can choose to make a pendant and earrings from your metal.
