Then, on Saturday and Sunday - Self registering, one piece blanking dies will give you the ability to quickly create multiples in metal sheet of the shapes you conceive, affording you the time to get lost in the design process and experiment with forming and assembling. Jayne Redman has been using this method for her own production jewelry for more than 20 years and has developed ways of creating dies and blanking multiples that dramatically speed up production. In this workshop you will learn how to develop patterns for this process and the method of sawing dies from flat stock tool steel. You will have the opportunity to make combination silhouette/blanking dies and create relief forms using the hydraulic press. You will be amazed at how quickly you can go from original idea to duplicated shape as you make and use your own dies during class. Jayne will also be demonstrating her own inventive methods of forming, connecting, and engineering.
