This lecture introduces the Foldforming system, reviews its origins and working principles, the ideas and experiments that gave rise to this new way of seeing and working with sheet metal. Foldforming is a new, rapid, easily learned way of shaping sheet metal with hand tools. It uses the plalsticity, ductility and clay-like nature of metal to quickly create 3D forms and shapes that resemble chased, constructed and soldered forms. Complex high relief forms are produced from single sheets of metal often with a single annealing. Tools are simple; fingers, hands, hammers, mallets, anvils and rolling mills. The techniques work with all metals and are applicable for jewellery, holloware, sculpture, enamelling, anodizing etc. The principles work with all metals including steel.
