Andy Cooperman workshop

A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend a workshop by metalsmith Andy Cooperman, who is someone I greatly admire. The topic of the workshop was "Bench Tips and Tricks" and he covered a lot of information on how he experiments and creates his work in his own studio. It was a really good workshop where I learned a lot!

Melting and fusing:



Flex Shaft Tricks:

Ninja Soldering (soldering something with a component that cannot be heated,
and wrapping that component in a wet paper towel to protect it):

If you want to see Andy Copperman's website with his amazing work, click here.

There was also a great video created by Arizona Designer Craftsmen
on Andy Cooperman's workshop that is on youtube here.
