In this workshop you will learn how to form and sink the bowl of a spoon in copper or brass sheet using mallets and dapping blocks. Bowl designs can be embellished with drilled holes to create patterns. The handle will be made using heavy gauge wire in round or square profiles, employing twisting and forging techniques as design elements. The bowl and handle will be riveted together using wire and hammers, and metal surface finishing will complete the piece.

 

Brooklyn Metal Works (BKMW), is a metal art studio and exhibition space that offers space to rent for the development of work in the metalsmithing field, as well as offering technique and concept based classes and gallery space to promote artists, designers and makers. The intention of this studio is to present a safe working and learning environment, complete with a wide inventory of tools and equipment. This collaborative setting is designed to foster exploration, encourage experimentation, and strengthen the knowledge of all involved. Brooklyn Metal Works aims to promote the field of metalsmithing and to further critical dialogue among those who practice, write about, and invest time and energy into the field.
