Fancy creating a spring wreath with a difference?
This handmade copper OR gold wreath will certainly be a show stopper, not only this Spring but for many to come, as unlike natural wreaths it won’t decay.
Learn metal embossing skills to create your own 3D designs and use wire to embellish the wreath further. We will then burn the metal with a small blow torch to reveal the beautiful colours conducted by the metal if using copper.
You will be shown a range of techniques and get to experiment a little before committing to your design. You will learn, embossing, heat colouring, wire sculpting, metal sculpting and composition.
This is usually a very expensive art form to learn, so make the most of this bargain while you can!
It is the perfect workshop to get you in the Spring season.
