Do you like metal? Do you like to eat? Wait, you make your own food too? Perfect!! This workshop will focus on the creation of measuring spoon sets through a series of metal forming techniques in aluminum, brass, copper, and sterling silver. We will utilize the power of the hydraulic press to develop the correct sized forms necessary for the bowls of each spoon. In addition to the press, sawing, filing, riveting and silver soldering will be covered in order to attach handles of your own design to each spoon bowl. The sets will be completely functional and ready to use by the end of the weekend. Beginner and Beyond
