Copper Bowl Workshop!!
Native American Indians living in the Upper Peninsula
of Michigan discovered outcroppings of a very pure
form of copper ore, the most pure in the world. They
forged tools from the copper to fit their life needs.
This workshop with artist Jikiwe (Ed Gray) will follow
the same ancient methods. Workshop participants
will form a copper bowl by using primitive tools. The
copper bowl will be annealed by fire until the
forming process is completed. The bowl can then be
embellished with beads, and/or found objects. Class
size is limited and on a “first come – first served”
basis. All classes start promptly at 9 a.m. Come and
learn ancient techniques of copper bowl forging
using a stump for an anvil, a stone for a hammer, and
an open pit fire for annealing. This class is taught
using teachings from the Ancestors. RAIN OR SHINE.
Bring: mat or chair, rain gear, and a brown bag
When? August 10 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 or 3:00 p.m.
