Working in my studio will give you hands on experience of working with copper. You will learn to cut the metal by hand and anneal the metal with a blowtorch . You can even try your hand at braising (a technique) similar to soldering. I will take you through the steps of manufacturing a small decorative object that you can take away with you . It may be a decorative copper flower for a vase, a serviette holder , a keyring, a bracelet or tea light holder.
I am the creator of Sarah Cronin Designs - A design company that manufactures water sculptures, indoor lighting, wall art and decorative homeware. I trained in Jewellery Design & Manufacture working overseas for well know fine jewellery companies . On returning to South Africa I set up a creative copper studio , using my jewellery skills but now on a bigger and bolder scale.
I will provide the equipment to make your decorative item out of metal that you can then take away with you .
You will be based at my fully equipped studio which is located at Victoria Yards - An urban inner city rejuvenation space . Studio 5D gate 1. Indoor parking is available . Studios here are filled with busy artisans perfecting their skills, from woodworkers to glass blowers to galleries there is so much to explore. Luscious veggie gardens line the pathways and restaurants and coffee shops have delicious dishes along with artisanal breads.
Closed shoes and a smile .
