Introduction to Copper Foil Embossing

This workshop is for adults (18+)

Sheets of thin copper foil will be used to create designs, inspired by patterns and shapes in nature, with dimension and texture through the method of embossing using simple hand tools.
You will finish your work by using heat to obtain a range of beautiful colours. The workshop is aimed at complete beginners and all materials and tools will be provided.

What to bring? You will be working with from natural pattern and shape references provided by your tutor but you are welcome to bring any personal inspiration which can be reviewed and adjusted as required to suit the techniques and material.
