Copper etch a design on a useful bottle opener.

If you love craft brewing, why not take it to the next level by crafting your very own bottle opener? In this hands on class you’ll learn metalsmithing techniques to create your very own custom bottle opener.  Starting with a round copper disc, you’ll prepare your metal then draw a design on with a pen resist.  The design will then be permanently etched in the metal using an acid. Create a beautiful antique finish on your copper using patina and wax. Next you’ll attach your copper disc to a stainless steel blank by filing, drilling and riveting it.
