19R137C - Coppersmithing 101


Learn how to work with copper and take home four handsome finished pieces. Vickie “Doc” Scherz has been sharing her coppersmithing skills with students for several years and welcomes beginners as well as those with some experience. You’ll learn how to move, manipulate, and reshape copper. The four projects include a 3”x4” copper “coupon” to chase and texture; a 4” pencil caddie that will hone your chasing (embossing) and texturing skills plus introduces soldering; a 7” vase stretches your talents just a little more; and a final 8” round plate involves more complex chasing to raise the design and sink the center.

Materials fee includes
all tools and materials. Additional copper will be available to purchase from the instructor.

Level: Beginner and above

Student Supply List:
Ear and eye protection and your favorite hammer. All other tools and materials are provided.

Materials Fee $35
