coppersmithing copper jewellery workshop

Book Tickets Online


Lake & Oak was founded by Matthew and Caron, professional jewellers and metalsmiths who specialise in the use of copper. Their foundry and workshop is based in Millisle, just outside Newtownards in the heart of the beautiful Ards Peninsula.

Inspired by the natural world around them, their work connects the past to the present, reviving stories told by ancient peoples and reclaiming respect for the vast oak forests that once made Ireland so unique.


Casual Coppersmithing - you will learn the basics of heating, chiselling, filing and texturing copper. Together, we will form a leaf pattern, adding texture and colour to it using a wide range of techniques. With hands on help and guidance from Matthew and Caron, every participant will come away with a leaf pendant necklace and one other item.

Creative Coppersmithing -  With a whole day to learn, you will have more time to make on your own. With full use of our range of tools, demonstrations at every stage and hands on help when you need it, you will be free to create a number of pieces of your choosing. Come away from this full day workshop with at least 3 items for you to add to your jewellery collection or give as gifts to friends and family. 
We guide and help, but you do more yourself

Every experience with Lake & Oak results in at least two pieces of jewellery for you to take home and treasure. Workshops are suitable for beginners, creatives, corporate and events.
