Hydraulic press

During this workshop we introduce the use of the hydraulic press in the workshop. On the basis of home-made molds we will press metal plates in order to create slightly domed objects. Experiments are carried out with different types of molds and plates. We process 1 of our pressed mold into a silver jewel.


From 13h till 14h the studio closes for a lunch break. There are many eating facilities in the neighborhood.
