Do you love to rock a scarf or shawl in the cooler months or have a friend that does? Do you want to learn new skills and make a couple gifts for the holidays while doing so and be able to make more at home with tools you may already have at home? Don’t have loads of time, but would like to hammer out some holiday season stress? This workshop is perfect for you!
Celtic pins dates back a couple thousand years, but their style remains as modern and functional as it was then! They make perfect companions to a loose weave crocheted or knitted garment. They’re a friend when you need your hands free because they hold your garment in place for you! The added bonus of the attached pin part means you won’t have to worry about losing or misplacing any part of it! Need I say more?!
Join me in my home-based studio for this small group, fast-paced metalsmithing workshop where you’ll use copper and/or brass silver wires to form, hand forge, file, texture, anneal with torch-if needed, learn how to add patina, and finish pieces! Finished pieces are roughly 2.25” in outer diameter. We will explore penannular and free form shapes.
Please note, this is a hands-on workshop using tools that require repetitive motion activities and hand strength. Those with hand, neck or back issues may wish to consult with me prior to sign up to see if the class is a good fit for you. Also, if you are of the age where you’ve heard and know what presbyopia is, you may wish to bring or invest in magnifier lens glasses. There are some inexpensive ones on Amazon that have built in head lamps. Chat me up, I’ll direct you to the kind I have. Access to the studio requires descending/climbing a full set of stairs.
Registration will close 2 days prior to the workshop. At registration, please be sure to furnish your correct email so we can send or update important information about your session. This class will need to meet minimum of three to run.
