Copper Roses: Feb. 9th

February 9, 2020 | 10am-1pm
Location: Calypso Farm Smithy

A collaboration between the Folk School and Calypso Farm and Ecology Center.

Create and build your own rose(s) just in time for Valentines Day! In this workshop we will learn how to handle copper to create decorative petals. We’ll work it cold to cut out blanks with tin snips or cold chisel. Then we will hammer texture into the petals. After this work hardening we will anneal the petals in the forge to soften and create various patinas (colors). Assembling them we will learn about soldering and hold to give life to these petal blanks.

Workshop Cost: $110 (member) $130 (non-member)*
