Hydraulic Die Forming day 1

 ,   Add to calendar
 Mentor  See map

Using a 20 ton hydraulic press, learn how metal can easily stretch and move to create puffed forms that are strong and lightweight. Making an acrylic die of their own design, participants will press multiple forms to create repeatable elements. All elements can be alike in silhouette and surface, or each changed by varying depths of pressing, double pressing, cutting the metal, or changing the surface. This is a great way to create a series of pendants, earrings or pins quickly and efficiently. Students with soldering experience can use these forms to make items such as hollow beads and pendants. This class is limited to eight students. Tools will be available for use.
