Class Description
We will spend day one making simple tooling. The next morning we will finish heat-treating the tools and start the process of laying out a design on the copper, putting it on our pitch bowl and making flat sheet into a dimensional piece.


About the Instructor
HEATHER MCLARTY started her foray into metal work in 1978 while building props for live theater. She began with steel fabrication and worked backwards technologically, using hot forging and other methods of moving metal around. She has an affinity for sheet work and has studied with masters both in the United States and the Czech Republic. I love helping others experience the joys of metalworking.
