WORKSHOP DETAILS

Quickly form copper sheet metal into wonderful 3-D shapes and textures from sheets of metal without any soldering.

Learn many low-impact  ways to fold metal in this 2 day workshop. You’ll leave with samples and ideas for further exploration. The workshop focuses on using foldforming methods in a smaller scale, aiming for jewelry making, concentrating on techniques that work for jewelry. You’ll learn the most appropriate foldforming approaches for textures, shapes and designs for small work. Bracelets, brooches and earrings are addressed.

Fold-forming uses sheet material, folds it, works it and then unfolds it. Fold forming is a quick, easily learned way of shaping sheet metal with hand tools. It emphasizes forming using the metal’s characteristics.  Shaping is extremely efficient and rapid (many are 3-7 minutes working time). Tools are simple; fingers, hammers, anvil and mill. Complex relief forms are made from sheets of metal often on one annealing.

Register here for the wait list for the Small Scale Foldforming for Jewelry Workshop on April 27 & 28, 2024. If a spot opens up, we will contact people on the Wait List in the order in which they have added their name.

About Ryan Gardner

Portrait of workshop instructor, metalsmith Ryan Gardner wearing a striped long sleeve polo shirt

Participation in the arts was always important to me growing up. A strong arts program in high school influenced my decision to pursue a degree in the arts. At Bowling Green State University, I discovered and fell in love with metals. Michael Boyd became an inspiration for me. Upon graduation I apprenticed for Michael Boyd at his studio in Colorado. The experience turned into an eight year adventure that continues today. With Michael I learned to work with and manipulate stone, adding a new element to my love of jewelry design.

I showcase my work in galleries across the country and on Ryan Gardner Designs. I love combining stone and metal in new ways to create works of art for people to enjoy.

If you have an artist profile on mbmag.org, that is great, too, but also not required.

When the artwork is delivered to the gallery, artists will fill out and sign an inventory of their work (using the RREVV gallery form). If you can supply a printed Artist Statement and Artist Biography for the gallery this will help the gallery team speak to potential customers about you and your art.

All pieces submitted must be for sale and priced with commission to the gallery in mind. (rrevv Gallery 40%, Artist 60%).  

Submission of an entry implies agreement to the rrevv gallery consignment form which can be read and downloaded.

We look forward to working with you,
Toni Danzig and Annette Nemes
Exhibit Coordinators
