“This was my first experience brazing and this project was the perfect introduction. Rita was extremely patient and thorough in explaining the process and gives you complete freedom to make a project that you are proud to take home. ” -student

Join us for a one day metal workshop that brings weaving and brazing together. Create a woven copper vessel or sculptural form using a non-traditional weaving technique.  You will be introduced to an oxygen-acetylene Cobra torch and learn how to anneal, braze, and form copper wire. Finally, bring your project to life through applications of simple patinas and coloring techniques. Unplug and experience inspirational views and a well-equipped studio with sculptor, Rita Marie Ross.

Lunch provided by Flite Acres for $10. (Please bring a sack lunch if you have diet restrictions)
