fullering a leaf

a fuller is hit with a hammer


The course is structured around a series of exercises which focus on learning a number of advanced techniques. You will be introduced to new sets of tools and will learn how to use them effectively to make natural organic forms. You will learn how to use fullers. These are straight or curved tools of different widths hit with a hammer. These allow you to create indentations, grooves and veins on a leaf or other organic form and to spread the hot metal to make thin, delicate edges.
