Wat je gaat doen

Fold-forming is a exciting technique where metal is folded, repeatedly forged, and unfolded creating beautiful organic forms.
Explore the many possibilities this technique has to offer using simple tools like hammers, anvils, vices and your fingers.
Imagine yourself in a supportive and creative environment with your friends at one of the largest artist colonies.

I’ll guide you with creative and fun instruction and you’ll jump right in to:

*Learn how to stretch and move metal by hammering to start shaping your copper forms like leaves, pods, pinched and sculptural metal & then some!
*Play with uniquely texturing copper with your handiwork.
*Learn how to anneal copper (using a torch to soften the metal).
*Learn to flame work copper colors (using fire).
*Sanding areas to create depth and contrast on your metal forms.
*Shape and hammer brass to create a decorative wire hanging for your pieces.
*You will have the option to add protective metal sealer for a glossy finish.
*Take home your beautiful fold-formed pieces!
*Perfect experience for an individual, group of friends and couples. No experience is necessary.

I brought my mom to Nicole's class as part of a Christmas gift and we had the best time! Thanks to Nicole's directions, the studio was really easy to find and she was waiting for us upon arrival. She was an excellent instructor and the two hours flew by. Seeing Nicole's passion for her craft only made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course.

We had a great Saturday couples’ day with Nicole at her studio. It’s located in a unique artists colony, and seeing how she does her art is half the fun. She provided cute snacks and helped us formfold copper leaves for gifting or keepsake use. We loved the private session, and would recommend the same to any couple looking for a makers’ class together.

LOVED this experience. Nicole is so personable and fun, and she is a great teacher. She made learning so much fun and easy to understand! She is hands on for safety, but hands off for personal discovery and exploration and she balanced the two perfectly. We had so much fun and love that we walked away with 10 pieces total! Highly recommend.
