WARWICK, N.Y. - May 25, 2015 - PRLog -- "Foldforming for Vessels" is this year's focus at the annual summer foldforming workshop event with Charles Lewton-Brain, the Canadian artist who pioneered the innovative new forming technique. The origami-like technique of foldforming is used to build dimensional objects from flat metal sheet. This new art technique was first systematically explored and documented by the celebrated Charles Lewton-Brain.

His work has been recognized by the British Museum Research Lab, by a 1991 Rolex award, and in 2012 he was the recipient of the prestigious Governor General Award for his contribution to Canadian arts. The annual event at the Center for Metal Arts is a chance for access to this very accessible and brilliant artist.
