1/2 day. 2pm-6pm. Tuition $75. Member Tuition $65. Materials fee $60.
Copper is a very different material from iron and is capable of being finished in beautiful ways. This class will cover the basics of non-ferrous forging, including annealing and work hardening, as well as finishes and patinas. Students will start with a sheet of copper that will be worked hot and cold to form a maple leaf. Then the instructor will share an ancient and closely guarded secret technique, which gives the leaves a red and gold finish.
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student’s safety.
