Using photos from The Tabernacle, by Moshe Levine, learn some types of metal-working mentioned in the Torah. Shape and decorate copper using metal punches, wooden anvils and hammers, and wooden dapping blocks. Use sand-casting techniques to turn a silver-like pewter cube into a carrying ring.

Length: 45 minutes for each group of 20 or fewer children and adults
