This workshop will be focused on the amazing mixed -metal techniques, that Patrick Davison is using in his own work.

By preparing special metal alloys and their specific solder as well as using familiar metals such as Silver, Brass or Copper, a vast range of combinations will be explored.  By the end of the workshop each student should have made his/her piece of jewelry in this magnificent technique.

The duration of the course is 5 days and 30 hours, the cost is 700€ + 22% Vat tax

This is Patrick’s second workshop in Alchimia. The first one part of the Alchimia MFA program was a great success and the students were enthusiastic about Patrick’s endless patience and passion.

Patrick Davison studied at the Glasgow School of Art and at Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence. After graduation he returned to Kent in England and set up his workshop where he continues to work. He began to develop his own work exploring a variety of gold and silversmithing techniques and complimenting this personal practice with work in jewellery workshops.
