We'll spend 2 days together in an intensive class building upon any previous crafting, metal art, or smithing background you may have. Or, if you've spent time as a tinker, this is your time to really dig in and have some fun with a trade you've had as an interest or side hobby. Come on over, use my hard-to-find tools, and learn some more!

This is your chance to make a custom lid for an odd shape, or create something you've been wanting to build for ages, or get more hands-on time with the tools themselves.

The workshop is held in person at my Fredonia, Wisconsin copper shop. It includes snacks and refreshments, two catered meals, and dinner out with me!
