About this workshop
Join blacksmith and founder of Eveleigh Works, Matt Mewburn, and learn to make a beautiful serving spoon from copper and steel that will last for generations.
In this full-day workshop, you’ll try your hand at blacksmithing techniques including heating, tapering, texturing and twisting to forge a piece of steel into an ergonomic handle for your spoon.
You’ll also try cold forming techniques using a variety of blacksmithing tools such as anvils, hammers, and swages to shape copper sheet into the bowl of your spoon before uniting the pieces with copper rivets.
