Friends of Penlee House Lecture: Newlyn Copperworks with Principal Craftsman, Michael Johnson SOLD OUT

February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Principal Craftsman, Michael Johnson will be giving a lecture about The Newlyn Copper Works.
Lectures take place at 7.30 p.m. at Penlee House. Tickets are available to book in January 2024
Bespoke copper, bronze and brass work from the finest industrial arts coppersmiths in the UK. First established in the fishing village of Newlyn in 1890, copperware produced in the following 60 years was some of the most outstanding work created in the arts and crafts tradition. Production largely ceased for 40 years until the workshop was re-established by Michael Johnson in 2004.
Michael has been recognised as the leading artisan coppersmith in the UK. Combining traditional coppersmith skills with the latest metalwork technology, The Copper Works produces the highest quality hand-crafted bespoke copper work available.
