Come learn how to make a useful magazine rack from scratch out of gorgeous copper pipe!
Both functional and stylish, this hands-on workshop will guide you through the steps of turning hardware store copper pipe into beautiful home decor. You’ll start by measuring your lengths and practice proper pipe cutting techniques using the cutting tool-- no hassle and no mess! After assembling the pipe into the rack design, you’ll choose your fabric, black or heather gray, and secure it using metal rivets and the setting tool. And finally we’ll give it a final polish for a bright finish and discuss options for keeping your copper sparkling or letting it take on an aged look.
You’ll leave with a full-sized rack ready to store magazines, comics, and books that looks perfect next to your sofa or armchair. This experience will also start you on the path to getting creative with copper pipe, just one more wonderful and accessible material to create with!
