Tradition and Innovation: Filigree workshop
Teacher: Susanne Matschè

Date: 8-9-10-11-12 December
Cost: 700€ + VAT Tax

In this workshop students will get an insight into the art of filigree. To create light, delicate pieces of jewelry, we will prepare decorative fine silver wires, make special solder alloy, and assemble wires in multiple layers.
The unusual technique of filigree is a fascinating process with its soft fine silver wire of an almost textile quality, the assembling of complex ornaments with glue on paper, the use of special tweezers and powdered solder. Over the course of the 5 days the students will have the opportunity to take the traditional technique further to develop a highly personal application out of these ancient methods…

Tools and materials are not included in the course fee and have to be provided by the students
