The summer weekend came quickly. And I packed up my car and headed south. Wow!!! I loved every minute. Linda taught us the technique--the basics--and now it's up to me to take that knowledge and practice. Hammering metal for 3 days was incredible and exhausting. Here's what I learned:
Structure--we hammered pyramids into the copper as an exercise.
Motion--swirls and curly-cues.
And lastly, our realistic project--I chose a dogwood flower. It was suggested to make our project on the simpler side--not many petals, and/or profile view.
Still needs some refinement, but coming along--tap, tap, tap.
