Workshop

In this environment there are ideally two areas: the first one is structured almost like any traditional work space, we can find a forge, various steel poles, the tasso su proccu (un cavalluccio con testa ferrata), a rack with a wide range of hammers; while the second area has complementary equipment not traditionally used by Isili's coppersmiths such as a manual bender, two edgebenders, a manual calender, two lathe plates, a cleaner, two manual shears, one for straight cuts, the other for circular cuts; and two workbenches.

The craft type of work usually takes place in the first area, with a predominant use of copper laminated with the traditional technique, that means by pounding. In the second area we usually realize the innovative kind of productions, using mostly copper sheets, as is produced nowadays.
