2015 – Charles Lewton-Brain

Charles Lewton-Brain

Our demonstrator this spring was Charles Lewton-Brain from Calgary, AB.  Charles is an expert, and in many ways, the originator of fold-forming copper sheet. His demonstration was on Saturday, followed by a hands-on Sunday, when we all got to try it.

He gave us very detailed information with each step of the way and his presentation was very fascinating. Copper work-hardens and cracks easily during the shaping process and has to be heated with a tiger torch frequently.






The fall meeting was held at Fernie Forge just  a few minutes east of Fernie, BC
