Metalsmiths and Bakers, Unite!

You don’t have to be a baker to take this workshop, but if you’ve ever dreamed of making the perfect set of measuring spoons, measuring cups, palette knives, or other baking utensils, this is the one for you! We will cover traditional metalsmithing techniques such as sawing, piercing, soldering, riveting, etc. You will be encouraged to embellish your pieces—using sawn, pierced, or forged elements—so your baking equipment will make professional bakers green with envy. This is a fun way to explore hollowware with practical results. We’ll work mostly with copper and brass, but students may choose to work with silver. All levels. Lower metals studio.
