Forging Through the Kitchen: Making Handcrafted Utensils Workshop with Danny Saathoff
June 24-27 | 9am-4pm
Open to All Levels
Have you ever thought about cooking with handcrafted utensils you made yourself? Pouring soup from a ladle that you created or flipping pancakes with a spatula built to fit your hands? This workshop focuses on beautiful, functional kitchen tools made mostly of metal. Possible items include spoons, forks, cheese knives, scoops, strainers, bowls, spatulas, and more.
Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, 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 is included in the construction; however, the majority is completed using cold connections. Copper and brass are primarily used, but silver is also an option. Open to all levels; some metalsmithing experience is helpful.
