Part of Experience Ards and North Down 2023. Click here to see the full programme.
Join local coppersmiths Matthew and Caron from Lake Oak Coppersmithing in The Walled Garden Helen's Bay for a unique, creative, copper flower making experience and learn how to create a bespoke piece of copper metal craft of your own.
On arrival, you will be welcomed with a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade before strolling around the garden to carefully select some flowers of your choice to be used as templates for your design.
You will learn traditional silversmithing techniques including forming, sawing, sanding, filing, hammering, piercing and polishing, and leave at the end of the workshop with your own unique copper flower which can also be made into a piece of jewellery. If there is sufficient time, additional pieces may also be crafted.
Refreshments including tea coffee and homemade cakes and bakes will be provided to fuel your creativity.
This experience is suitable for beginners and includes all materials and professional tuition in a delightful heritage garden setting.
