In this fast-paced workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of die forming in the press to create hollow three-dimensional forms. Discover how to use commercially available silhouette dies and how to make your own custom two-sided dies! You will also learn techniques such as soldering hollow forms, soldering small pieces of metal to larger pieces of metal, and foldforming and how to pair each with the press to achieve more complex 3-D forms in metal.
