    Fold-forming is  a completely new way of forming sheet metal quickly into wonderful 3-D shapes and textures, mostly from single sheets of metal without any soldering. Fold-forming uses sheet material, folds it, works it and then unfolds it. This process is about following what the metal likes to do rather than forcing form upon the material. Forms are to some extent derived from the natural tendencies of the plasticity, ductility and elasticity of the metal.

    This is an intermediate level class for those that have taken at least 1 jewelry or metals classes from BARN or another school.

    $20 material fee will be added to class fee when you register
    Please bring a bag lunch. BARN has a refrigerator to store your lunch in.

    Charles will be giving a lecture at BIMA, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art on Friday, July 20th.  This event is sponsored by Seattle Metals Guild and is free. 

    Instructor: Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain has trained, studied and worked in Germany, Canada, and the United States to learn the skills he uses. His work and writing on the results of his technical research, have been published internationally. In 1994 Brain Press was established which documents, publishes and markets the results of his research activities. His publications include two major books, Fold-forming with Brynmorgen Press, and The Jeweler's Bench Book with MJSA Press.

    MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is the easiest kind of welding to learn and a technique with broad applications.

    At the end of the class, students should be able to lay down a weld bead, identify the characteristics of a good bead, and problem solve for the causes of incorrect beads. Students may progress to simple welded pieces and may compete a simple project like a pair of bookends.

    Class size is 3 people facilitating one-on-one learning and direct mentoring from a professional welder. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped Miller 215 welder. 

    The three hour class costs $64 for members and $77 for non-members.  There is an additional $15 materials fee for steel, gas, and filler wire that will be added to the cost of the class when you register.

    Safety and Personal Protection Equipment will be provided by BARN.

During this time she interned and volunteered at a metal arts school called The Crucible. She returned to Bainbridge Island and began doing furniture bases and other fabrication for Coyote Woodshop. Eventually she moved on to work at an Island fabricating shop as well as teach at another Kitsap area school aimed towards children's welding education. She still currently does fabrication all over Kitsap. Her passion is everything welded including large and small indoor and outdoor household amenities. She also takes part in the local art community with sculptures in local shows past and future.

    Cut shapes out of flat sheet steel.  Make an idea into hard reality. 

    Participants will use a plasma cutter to create a design in 16 gauge steel (roughly 3/32nds). Each student will have a 2 foot square sheet of steel (and a practice piece).  Bring a design. Detail should be at a level you can draw with a sharpie or soapstone and trace with a somewhat awkward implement while wearing gloves. 

    Plasma cutting uses a highly focused electric arc and compressed air to cut steel.  Wiki (paraphrased) describes the process thusly:  Plasma cutting involves creating an electrical channel of super-heated, electrically ionized gas i.e. plasma, through the work piece forming a completed electric circuit. Compressed gas is blown through a focused nozzle at high speed.  The electrical arc ionizes some of the gas, thereby creating an electrically conductive channel of plasma. As electricity from the cutter torch travels down this plasma it delivers sufficient heat to melt through the work piece. The compressed gas blows the hot molten metal away, thereby cutting through the work piece. 

    The three hour class costs $47 for members and $56 for non-members. 
    There is a $25 materials fee for steel and consumables that will be added to the cost of class when you register.

    Small class size (3) creates a learning atmosphere with direct mentoring.  Work space is limited on the plasma table. Students will take turns using the plasma cutters.

    The class begins with a safety briefing.

    Safety and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) will be provided by BARN.
