COPPERSTATE WORKSHOPS

WILL GET YOU STARTED

 

Each COPPERSTATE Workshop is lead by an experienced leader in the craft. The Workshops are an excellent way to get started learning a new skill. You’ll be introduced to the materials, the knowledge base and the reference materials that you’ll need to continue your journey of self education.

.Not every workshop has the same structure. Each workshop leader is authorized to schedule and run the workshop as they see fit. You may contact the leaders via email prior to the event
