Idyllwild Metals Week (Workshop)

Learn how to create single, double, accordion darts and overlapping pleats in copper. Drape metal like fabric, using hammers and daps instead of needles and threads. Pattern making techniques will be taught so you can replicate and adapt your designs.

The workshop expands and explores the boundaries of forming and raising metal. Students learn to ergonomically form vessels using large wooden dapping blocks, Delran mallets and steel daps. They finish their vessels by centering and planishing them on steel stakes.
