Join us for a Pop-Up Kids Coppersmithing Class on October 26, 2019 from 11-2.

In this class, kids will learn the basics of Coppersmithing: why copper bends, how to make it bend, general safety rules when working with hot metal, heating and quenching metal, hammering techniques, finish work, and so much more.

Their finished project will be a copper bracelet made from reclaimed copper pipe.

Kids 10 and up are welcome to attend this class as long as a parent stays onsite with them. Parents can purchase a spot in the class to learn with their kids OR they can simply be here while their kids learn these new exciting skills.

Palmer Folk School will provide a particulates mask for kids to wear while sanding and filing their projects.
Kids should bring:

  • Safety Glasses if they so desire
  • a water bottle
  • a snack
