Transforming Metal Workshops

Apr 30, 2024
Transforming Metal Workshop at Madison Public Library with the Wisconsin Metalsmiths

Have you ever wondered how your favorite piece of jewelry was made?  Have you ever watched a metalsmith transform a piece of flat, ordinary metal into a beautiful object? If so, you will really enjoy this hands-on workshop hosted at Madison Public Library!

Members of the Wisconsin Metalsmiths will be on hand demonstrating their techniques and skills, and will teach you how to produce your own wearable item or useful object of art. Try your hand at transforming sheets of metal into something special, using hammers, pliers, stamps, torches, and more. Participants will walk away from the workshop with something that is uniquely theirs!

No previous metalsmithing skills are necessary. Everything will be provided for you to experience the magic of manipulating metal.
