Class Descriptions

Copper Dart Points - Bob Berg

Copper makes a durable and beautiful dart point. They can be made with simple tools, and bob will have everything you need to help complete the project.

Copper Culture and Bead Making - Peter McCreedy

Explore the 5000 year old copper culture of the Great Lakes’ native people. Peter will present a brief slideshow with archaeological documents, maps, and artifacts, then we will pound reclaimed copper with hammer and anvil, anneal it in a forge, and create three historically accurate tubular beads like those found widely traded throughout the eastern woodlands. We will also make our own cord from local basswood fiber for your new necklace or bracelet. This class will be for both kids and adults - a great opportunity for parents and children to work together on a project that all ages will appreciate!
