Technician Workshop: Copper Bangle Making

Wednesday 20 October 2021 10:00am - 12:30pm

Join us for a morning of copper bangle making. During this hour long workshop you will be working with our very own Institute of Making technicians to create a unique piece of jewellery.  Begin by using a variety of hammers to texture your copper strip before using metal stamps to emboss a message, name or word of your choice, then bend it to a perfect fit. With no prior experience needed, this is great opportunity to find your way back to the workshop!
