Learn how to make a copper bowl in just one day at Studio Budgie Galore. This class is a great introduction to working in copper sheet to hammer form your own unique bowl.
With guidance from your tutor, you will learn how to heat metal and form a flat sheet by blocking/sinking using a specialist hammer and sandbag. You will then learn how to form the metal as much or little as you wish to create a bowl that is truly unique. Finally when you reach your desired shape you will learn how to planish the piece to give a lovely even hammered surface.
The workshop is fun and informative and no previous experience is needed but is also suitable for those with previous jewellery and metalworking experience.

I enjoyed a fun, creative day and came home with 2 beautiful and very different copper bowls. Melissa explained each process very clearly and gave all members of the course lots of individual attention.
I would highly recommend the course to people of all abilities as each participant made at least 2 unique pieces of art.
I really enjoyed this course, it was taught brilliantly by Melissa and I went on to make several small bowls which I gave as presents and also sold at the pop up shop. I would recommend this course to anyone, it was a great day
I just loved this copper bowl workshop!
Melissa was a very good teacher and the small class size meant plenty of one to one time if needed.
It was very satisfying to leave at the end of the day with two beautiful copper bowls - I haven't stopped making them since! :-)
I would definitely recommend this workshop.
