Course Overview

Anticlastic Raising Workshop

In our anticlastic raising workshop you will learn how to raise an anticlastic bangle using a sinusoidal stake. This course will also cover creating anticlastic shapes using doming punches; a technique used to make spinning rings.

When starting out with this technique you will mainly work with round forms. However, once you have mastered these raising techniques you will be able to create more elegant organic shapes to suit your personal style.

To add the finishing touch to your piece you’ll learn how to use a polishing motor to achieve a high shine.

Definition of anti-clastic

  • Please listen to directions from your tutor to ensure you know how to use all the equipment safely and correctly.
  • Do not operate equipment you do not know how to use.
  • Covered footwear is required and absolutely no high heels.
  • Tie back long hair when using motorised equipment.
  • Please respect others and don’t interrupt students who are soldering, using the drill or any other equipment that could create a safety concern if the operator is distracted.
