Use Sewing Techniques to Raise a Vessel by Marne Ryan
This is a great workshop from beginners to professionals who want to expand and explore the boundaries of raising metal.
Bring your hammers, bring your stakes and create darts, single, double, accordion and overlapping pleats in copper. Drape metal like fabric, using hammers and daps instead of needles and threads.
Learn pattern making techniques so you may replicate or adapt your designs.
Students will learn how to ergonomically form vessels using large wooden dapping blocks, cone and regular Delran mallets and steel daps. They will finish their vessels by centering and planishing it on steel stakes. Turn inexpensive hammers into beautiful texturing tools.
Make simple to complex vessels with low walls, high walls or asymmetrical walls. Learn how to make lids for your vessels. Play with torch and liver of sulfur patinas
