This workshop will teach students the basic skills and aesthetic concepts required to create a hammered copper box in the iconic Arts & Crafts style. Joe will cover everything from the historical influences that shape the style to the practical nitty-gritty of hammering out parts and riveting them together. Students will be exposed to the nuances of coppersmithing in this important early 20th century aesthetic movement. Regardless of its contents, a thoughtfully crafted copper box is both sculpture and a family heirloom to be cherished for generations. Students will learn how to design, cut, rivet, sand shape and create an antique patina that will give their box a distinguished look. With an infinite range of practical and decorative possibilities, boxes are excellent projects for both beginning hammer-bangers and advanced metal-tinkerers.
