Melt Your Mother's Heart with the Corrina Sephora Mother's Day Metalsmith Class
Atlanta’s favorite metallic artist is back with a brand new class that gets to the heart of what makes metallurgy so great. At Corrina Sephora’s latest workshop you’ll receive one-on-one instruction on several metalworking techniques, which you’ll use to create your own brass and copper flowers.
What To Expect
- A 3-hour hands on workshop at Corrina Sephora’s Goat Farm Studio on May 4th at 6:30-9:30 PM
- Learn how to create flowers out of brass or copper, using a variety of metalworking techniques
- Post-workshop snacks and beverages with Corrina and your classmates
As a little girl, Corrina Sephora used to watch in awe, while her father would weld in his boat-building workshop. Ever since then, she has had a lifelong fascination with combining metal and fire to create art. It's lucky for us that Corrina’s art career eventually brought her to Atlanta because it not only means that we can enjoy her art commissions all over the city, but that we also have access to hands-on metallurgy education from the artist herself at her intimate studio workshops.
While welding, hammering, and twisting resistant pieces of metal into works of art may not be for the faint of heart, Corrina and her staff are the perfect guides to walk newcomers through each step, especially in her newest class, where you can learn how to fashion three-dimensional flowers out of brass and copper. You’ll start out with several sheet metal flower cutouts, which in only a few hours will be transformed and combined into a beautiful decorative flower. After annealing the metal in the furnace, you’ll form and fashion each flower cut out using a variety of hammering and shaping techniques on the anvil and stump, all under the instruction of Corrina and her expert studio staff. The separate pieces will then be combined onto a stem and finished with a blowtorch to create a gorgeous ornamental flower.
This class is for anyone who wants a crash course in the fundamentals of metallurgy. Corrina has decades of experience as an artist and an educator, so you couldn’t be in better hands as you learn the ins and outs of turning metal into art. It’s also great for anyone who’s in the market for a unique handmade gift or personal decorative item. Also, at the end of the workshop you and your classmates will be treated to some complimentary drinks and snacks, so if you’re looking for an educational experience that’s also fun and social, then you’ve come to the right place.
