Craft a beautiful serving spoon from copper and steel that will last for generations.

In this class we start the morning by heating, tapering, texturing and twisting a piece of steel to form an ergonomic handle. 

Next we will form and dish the copper with a variety of blacksmithing tools and techniques such at anvils, hammers, swages and heat. Finally, after a quick clean and polish, comes the time to unite the pieces with cute copper rivets. 

This class will cover skills in hot forging and the use of heaps of blacksmithing techniques as well as cold forming of copper sheet (including annealing and descaling the copper).

Great workshop introducing elements of blacksmithing and the history of the Eveleigh Precinct. James was a very good demonstrator and conducted a well paced workshop. All participants were impressed with what could be achieved in a short amount of time with instruction, specialised tools, a bit of effort and their own two hands. Thank you!

Another tight and well run class by the crew at Eveleigh. James was an excellent teacher, well spoken with a bit of light hearted humour chucked in. His knowledge of blacksmithing shines through with clear instructions and demonstrations that make it easy for us to follow along. Always sad to leave at the end of the day and so refreshing to go back into this historic workshop.
