So I have two beginners and three advanced beginners.
We spent the morning in "lecture" discussing what metal work they have done and what they want to do with C&R. What is pitch, the bowl, the tools, the hammers and we looked at lots of my work/samples, books for reference and what to gather for accessories/tools beyond the actual tools, hammers and pitch and bowl.
During this they annealed and placed their copper into the pitch bowl and when it was cool they FINALLY got started on learning to line - straight and curved; postures, holding the tool and hammers and positioning the hammers.
At the end of the day they pulled their lining sample out of the pitch and put another piece of copper in. This will allow them to start the workshop project next week and we won't have to wait for the pitch to cool.
