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.

What to create today?

So what does a person who teaches programming and logic do for fun?  Create, of course!  I've been teaching adults computing, programming and web developer skills for over 20 years.  About 15 years ago, I started crafting ... and got hooked.  Papercrafting led to stained glass, which lead to lampworking beads and making jewelry, which led to fusing/slumping glass and kaleidoscopes.  Keeping to the torch and jewelry, I added metal crafting to the mix.  The beadmaking branched off to polymer clay which then merged with the glass and paper to become mixed media.  Throw some fabric and yarn into the mix and I end up with cloth art dolls.  I heard about skillshare and thought what a perfect union ... I could take my love of teaching and my love of crafts and share!
