Course Overview

Anticlastic Raising Workshop

In this 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.

Students will also learn how to polish and finish their jewellery to add the final touch.

Definition of anti-clastic

“(Of a surface) having a curvature, at a given point and in a particular direction, that is of the opposite sign to the curvature at the point in a perpendicular direction”
