Raising Organic Forms

Angle Raising allows makers to transform flat sheet metal into dynamic three-dimensional forms. In this weekend workshop led by master of anthropomorphic forming techniques, Logan Woodle, students will learn the fundamentals of angle raising by creating a form and then adding complexity using hammer forming and chasing processes. Along with a vessel form, attendees can expect to leave the course with an understanding of pattern development, tool modification, and hammer forming processes that facilitate the making of organic shapes. A component of this class will focus on modifying a raising hammer to fit each student's needs.
