Attendees of the class have the opportunity to make either a copper Ginkgo spoon with antler handle or a copper Ginkgo Flat server with antler handle. Each attendee will choose ONE to make.
Students will trace a template on a sheet of copper. They will be cutting the copper tracing and filing the edges so it is smooth. Students will learn planishing with a Cross Peen hammer to add texture. This technique is used for both pieces.
For both pieces, they will then drill a hole into the antler and then take the stem and hammer it into the antler. They will prepare to rivet the spoon bowl or flat server onto the antler handle using solid brass rivets.
