About this Event

we will use dishing and raising techniques to make a cupped shape from a flat sheet of metal.

You will need 20 or 22 gauge silver, brass or copper sheet, big enough for the bowl, anywhere from about 1 inch to about 3 inches in diameter. If you want to make a miniature bowl, we can use the disk cutter to cut a circle up to about 1 1/4 inch. For larger pieces, we will use the bench shear to rough out the circle, and you will have to do some filing to finish out the bowl. The thicker the sheet, the deeper a cup you can make.

Instructor will try to have some 22 gauge copper sheet available, for about $2 - 5. If you want silver sheet, you might try the Rock Barrell or Roseco, or order on-line.

There will be a lot of hammering - hearing protection is strongly recommended. We will need to anneal the pieces with the torch, so no loose hair, natural fiber clothing, closed-toe shoes - avoid any possibility of burns.

Bowls take a lot of time. It is possible we won't finish completely, but we can make a good start.
