Hammered Copper Bowls with Stone Tools (with Martha Buche)

August 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

$35 – $65

Using the warm, red metal my Bodewadmi (Potawatomi) relatives call “miskwabik” (copper) and basalt hammer stones from the shores of G’chi gamii (Lake Superior), we will hand-forge bowls on wooden stumps. In a process called “sinking”, or hammering on the inside, we will anneal the metal in a wood fire and form our richly colored, beautiful vessels using the power of our own muscles. Come join us in this elemental journey of copper, fire, water, and stone.

Instructions: Please bring a pair of close fitting work gloves to protect your hands from the sharp metal and, if you wish, a pair of safety goggles.
