METALS / JEWELRY

GARDEN ART

Sharon K Novak

Enjoy making whimsical metal Garden Art to display on your patio, porch or garden wall, or hang in a tree or window. Use a variety of metalsmithing tools and techniques as you learn to cut, texture, emboss and stamp words or designs into flat, thin-gauge copper or brass sheet, and then move the metal into 3-D sculptural form through bending, folding or twisting. Create a decorative brass hook and add colorful glass bead elements with wire ‘cold-connections’ after you’ve learned to forge, twist, coil and spiral!

COPPER VALENTINE

Sharon K Novak

Create a unique Valentine using thin gauge copper or brass sheet which was ‘heat-painted’ with torch, flux & silver by the instructor prior to class. Make a pattern for your heart shape, cut it out of the rich painterly metal, and let your imagination soar as you imprint words with letter stamps or texture with hammers and punches. Add subtle dimension using mallets, mandrels or your hands to gently bend and form the metal. Learn to twist, coil and spiral thin gauges of wire to use as decorative accents or to ‘cold-connect’ shapes together. Use hammers or pliers to ‘edge-thicken’ as you strengthen and visually enhance your piece. Fringe, sew, or wrap edges with wires. Hammer and spiral a brass hook, attach colorful glass beads and your Valentine is ready to give or display.
