Beginners Copper Bowl Making

X

Description

Starting with a sheet of brass or copper, Emily will show you how to tidy up the edges of a simple shape to ensure they are not sharp. The main body of the experience will be learning how to shape the piece of copper into a bowl, and understanding how to create a curved form using a process known as sinking. There will also be an opportunity to add detailing and character with various tools. Not only will you leave this experience with a delightful piece to add to your home, you will also have a hands-on appreciation of just how important handcraft skills are and the work that goes into even the simplest of crafts. In a world of rushing, fast consumption and excess, take the time to spend an evening to learn about a slower craft and appreciate the handmade.

I graduated with a BA in Jewellery from UCA Farnham in 2019. I've been making jewellery using a variety of different techniques since I was 12, and knew that I wanted to go study metalwork at uni for a long time! I've been working with wax for a number of years now, and I'm now confident that I can effectively share that knowledge!
