Skill Deficiency Anemia

So very many of the ideas I have for Agincourt, especially for the new exhibit this fall, involve skill sets that are simply not in my repertoire. Metalwork, for example, comes into play at several points: 1) the “wrought iron” wreaths on the exterior of the public library; 2) the weather vane that once graced the second county courthouse (destroyed by fire in 1966); or 3) the copper baptismal font at St Joseph-the-Carpenter.

What I had in mind is along the lines of this Newlyn beaten copper bowl, only much, much larger—big enough for a baby, for goodness sake. Do you imagine I could learn how to do this in a couple weeks?
