Immersive, Creative events in Nature
Half day copper workshop for beginners and dabblers alike!! We will forge beautiful and unique objects to adorn your house & garden!! During this half day workshop we will be upcycling old copper (mostly pipes) into new and wonderful things! Copper is an ancient semi-precious metal which has a rich history but is still extensively used today in so many differnet industries and crafts; this is partly due to its versatile nature and corrosion resistance, but also the fact it is highly recyclable and in that respect is a sustainable material to use. The rich rose-gold colour is another reason it is so popular and it can be finished in a variety of ways to achieve a real variation of colours and effects too, which means it can suit lots of different environments and decors. The focus of this workshop will be on teaching how copper behaves and which techniques and tools to use in order to work with and manipulate it into simple shapes and designs. We will learn about simple joining method...

About your Mentor
