About This Class

Copper's malleability and beauty shines as the star of this project.   Fold forming is manipulating metal by annealing, folding and working with it until you get a texture that you like.  Cold connecting metal is a method of connecting pieces of metal with heat or soldering.  In this class, you'll create a copper cuff bracelet as you learn both techniques along with a variety of ways to patina the copper.
