Join us in our specialist metal workshop this summer, and feel the magic! We provide the copper sheet and the tools you need – hammers for sinking and planishing, a blowtorch and hearth, file, dividers, stakes, piercing blades, even a tree stump - so you can learn to make your own unique copper bowl. Over the weekend, you might go on to create tea light holders, a decorative ladle, or even transform your bowl into a stunning hanging basket.
