This workshop will explore various techniques of folding paper as the basis for application with metal sheet. We will use thin metal sheet for scoring and bending to create renditions of architectural and organic forms. Various forming, soldering and construction techniques for the creation of small objects and structures will be explored. I will demonstrate the surface setting of small, faceted stones on thin metal sheet and rapid techniques of delft clay casting for the small studio to incorporate as a design element.
