Hammered Copper Bowls – Driftless Folk School
August 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$70
Registration Deadline: 7/27/2019
Shape a flat copper disk into a shallow vessel using fire and stones, just as the indigenous peoples of the Great Lakes crafted them for centuries. Work the metal in the most low-tech way of all! Experience the magic of plucking the glowing red metal straight from the fire and shaping it with the strength of your own hands. Please note this activity involves tools, hot, sometimes sharp, metal and work with fire. It is possible to be injured if care is not taken. Persons wanting to be involved must be willing to take these risks and be responsible for themselves.
