burnished copper items


Find out more about Lake & Oak Coppersmithing and the workshops they offer.
Caron of Lake & Oak says "Every experience with Lake & Oak Coppersmithing results in at least two pieces of jewellery/ornament for you to take home and treasure. Our range of workshops are suitable for beginners, creatives, corporate and events!

The Casual Coppersmithing workshop teaches fundamental metalworking techniques which you can then utilise to make unique jewellery or ornaments. The techniques you will learn will include fold forming, heating, chiselling, filing and texturing copper. Throughout the session, you will receive hands on help from us and you will come away with at least two finished items. Typically, we start the workshop off with leaf making as it allows you to learn a variety of skills and every leaf made is unique.

When you learn to work with copper, you are also sowing the seeds for smithing more precious materials like silver and gold. For this reason, a workshop with us is often the beginning of something new, a new passion and skill that will become as valuable to you as the items you create."

Call in to Ards Visitor Information Centre to find out more about the workshops on offer - you might be inspired to learn a new skill!
