£90.00. Tutor Wes Cole.
This workshop is designed for total newcomers to metal work. You will learn how to make tools to work copper sheet and then try some basic techniques with the aim of getting to a position where you can improve your skills at home.
You will learn how to bring copper sheet alive with artwork by striking the copper, either with specialist hammers or striking tools into the copper, to give you the desired effect. We will provide some basic designs for you to try. You will discover how to acquire and or make the necessary tools, how to anneal the metal ready for working and how to move copper so that you can build on your basic skills at home.
This will be a very hands on workshop but unlike steel work, copper repousse has relatively low physical demands so it’s a great stepping stone to other metal workshops available at Butser Ancient Farm. All tools and materials will be provided.
