Metal Spinning with Lynne Hull May 16 - 20, 2022

about this workshop

This class will introduce woodturners and woodworkers to the metal spinning process, an industrial process used to create objects such as vent systems, lamp parts and automobile components. Students will explore the creative options this technique offers the turner, learn to adapt a woodturning lathe for metal spinning and to make the hand tools needed to form sheet metal. Handouts and diagrams will be provided. This workshop will include demonstrations and hands-on experience in creating wood patterns that students will spin metal over for finished objects. Everyone will be working with non-ferrous metals such as copper, brass and aluminum. An introduction to basic metalworking skills will be addressed along with layout, cutting and annealing metal to soften for forming. Cold joinery such as rivets and silver soldering/brazing will be demonstrated. Emphasis will be on learning the basic technical skills involved in this metal forming process. Integrating wood into the finished objects will be encouraged.
