This is a 2-day workshop at my Fredonia, Wisconsin coppersmithing shop, with roughly 16 total hours in the copper shop. It's a more focused workshop, where we will be building cookware from scratch, tinning it, and getting it usable on a modern stove.

There will be a catered lunch provided both days as well as a few additional short breaks / snacks throughout. 

Be prepared to use many different machines (vintage and modern) and work with fire and molten metal. **Safety equipment will be provided.**

Class Dates:  Friday August 23 & Saturday August 24, 2024

What You Learn:

What all the 1700 - 1800s hand tools of the trade are, and their names; how to use all the hand tools and hands-on practice using them.

Also what are and how to use the 1700s - 1800s stakes - and practice using them.

And learn and practice with the vintage hand rotary machines.

Then, we'll move to the blacksmithing forge and practice with that.

You'll learn how to create a pattern to make a copper pot from scratch.

Then, build it entirely by hand.

You'll also use blacksmithing to make a handle and then attach it with copper rivets.

Lastly, you'll tin your pot. We'll make sure it doesn't leak!

A final buff and polish - and you'll have a homemade copper pot to use forever!

What You Take Home:

Two review booklets with all the information from the class for later study/use

A handmade tin-lined copper pot with a forged iron handle.

Knowledge that will live in your hands forever!

Dinner and drinks with Sara on Friday August 2nd.
