In this workshop students 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 work space to rent for those in the metalsmithing field, as well as technique and concept based

classes. 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.
