Forging Through the Kitchen: Making Handcrafted Utensils Workshop with Danny Saathoff
August 26 - 29, 2019
Have you ever thought about cooking with handcrafted kitchen utensils you make yourself? Pouring soup from a ladle that you created, or flipping pancakes with a spatula built to fit your hands? This workshop will focus on making beautiful, functional tools made mostly of metal. Possible items include spoons, forks, cheese knives, ladles, scoops, strainers, bowls, spatulas, and more.
Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, you will learn how to raise sheet metal to make hollow forms, saw, texture, file, and finish and polish metal, as well as how to fabricate and rivet wood or stone for handles. Soldering will be included in the construction; however, the majority will be completed using cold connections. Copper and brass will be primarily used, however silver is also an option. Some metalsmithing experience is helpful, but novices are encouraged to register.
