Learn the art of metal hammering, also known as “Tankin” in japanese. We redesigned this class after a learning trip to Tsubame-Sanjo in Niigata, Japan, hence making this a tribute piece to that trip. This project covers the forming of a raw zinc plate into a lampshade by the process of cold forging, with the surface planished by repeated hammer blows on a stake anvil.
5-9 hours, spend an extra session on a 2nd day to refine your work.
