Coppersmithing is a technique where sheets of copper are formed over a metal form or hammered into a wooden depression to form bowls and other shapes. Metal is hard but when worked properly it can move like elastic to create unique and complicated forms from organic to geometric.
In this one-day workshop you will learn the basic copper forming techniques and how to solder a simple joint to form a small copper bowl or form and solder a foot or handle onto the form.
