Youth activities, Broomfield Library April 20, 2013

Cut, stamp, file and fire shiny, metallic copper pieces into your own works of poetic art.  Come explore your inner creativity and do a project in metal stamping.  Students will have a chance to visualize, create and stamp their own copper bookmark with their favorite poetic phrase or quote.  Instructors will teach stamping and hammering techniques, cutting and filing copper, drawing on copper using colored pencils and permanent markers and if time permits, firing copper to create a myriad of fused colors.  Students will have the opportunity to use engraving tools, cutters, files, scissors, hammers and stamps to complete their bookmark charm.  If you have a hammer at home, please bring it along with you.

Hope to see you then....
