Part of Experience Ards and North Down 2023. Click here to see the full programme.
* New for 2023* Be inspired by the Ulster Folk Museum site during this unique coppersmithing experience with local provider Lake and Oak Coppersmithing.
As part of a small group, you’ll start the day with a wander around our museum’s rural grounds, taking in the nature and learning about folklore connected with some of our native species. During the afternoon you will produce your very own fold formed copper sculpture with guidance from Matthew and Caron from Lake and Oak Coppersmithing. The workshop involves using hammers, chisels, files and blow torches to bring your copper creation to life inspired by the beauty and tradition of the Ulster Folk Museum site.
All levels of experience are welcome!

Ulster Folk Museum has many historic buildings which aren’t completely accessible to visitors. Due to the historic nature of their design, you’ll find uneven surfaces and stepped access to some of the older buildings and there are a variety of ground surfaces and hills around the rural parts of the museum, to be expected with it being an outdoor museum. Our team will be there to provide assistance and guidance to anyone who needs it and mobility scooters or all-terrain wheelchairs can be booked in advance by emailing email@example.com or calling +44 (0)28 9039 5292.
