Hand Make a Gorgeous Copper Magazine Rack
In this two hour workshop you'll learn a range of skills, and leave with a beautiful magazine rack made from scratch. You'll transform a couple of lengths of copper pipe and some wool felt into this fantastic useful and stylish magazine rack.
Our wonderful tutor and homewares designer Melodie Telliez will start by teaching you how to cut copper accurately, using a brilliantly fun cutting tool that does all the hard work for you. No hacksaws, metal shavings or any other nasties, just a clean and satisfying cut!
Then you’ll move on to constructing your magazine rack using copper fittings and our quick drying resin glue to secure it solidly in place. There's no soldering or welding required so you will be able to recreate the process at home (because all your friends are going to want one once they see what you have made!)
When the frame has been constructed, you can choose from a range of five gorgeous colours of thick wool felt (cream, pale pink, mustard, grey, and teal) to attach. Melodie will show you how to measure and cut the felt, and how to securely attach it using special fastenings and tool.
Last of all you'll polish up the copper to give it a lovely bright finish, and you are all done! Your finished magazine rack will measure 30cm by 20cm by 30cm, so will be big enough to hold all your favourite magazines and books.
When you've finished, you'll be able to take the magazine rack home and start using it right away. We'll provide a large bag to carry it home in.
