Explore two very different mediums (metalsmithing and block printing) in one fun class! You will create your very own block printed napkins and embossed copper napkin rings in this awesome full day workshop. Start with natural fiber cloth napkins and learn how to design, lay out and carve a block to print your own unique designs on the fabric with permanent ink.
Next you’ll explore metalsmithing skills to transform copper into napkin rings. You’ll learn to imprint your design in the copper then file and hammer the copper into a ring shape. Add patina and wax to create a beautiful finish on the metal.
Each student will make 4 napkins and 4 napkin rings to take home after class. You’ll definitely want to host a dinner party to impress your friends with your awesome custom napkins and rings!
All materials are included in the price of the class. No experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure and a desire to try something new.
