In this workshop you will learn everything youโ€™ve ever wanted to know about etching metal including new technology that uses easy, non-hazardous solutions for electro-etching. The class will include a copper shape that can be used to make a finished piece. A variety of resist methods, including simple ways to add freeform designs on the metal, will be demonstrated.  Discussion will include etching on bronze and silver.  

As a bonus the class will include how to punch holes in the copper and then a riveting demonstration. The kit will include a colorful printed element you can rivet to your etched copper for a layered effect. You will leave the class with a completed copper piece ready to hang from a cord or chain.
