Coppersmithing 101

Learn how to work with copper and take home four handsome finished pieces. Vickie “Doc” Schertz has been sharing her coppersmithing skills with students for several years and welcomes beginners as well as those with some experience. You’ll learn how to move, manipulate, and reshape copper. The four projects include a 3″ x 4″ copper “coupon” to chase and texture; a 4″ pencil caddie that will hone your chasing (embossing) and texturing skills plus introduce soldering; a 7″ vase that stretches your talents just a little more; and a final 8″ round plate that involves more complex chasing to raise the design and sink the center.
