Join us to learn to make a pair of earrings using the ancient Japanese technique Keum-Boo. This process involves heat fusing 24k gold onto fine silver.
This beginner workshop introduces the maker to texture plates and a rolling mill for unique texture designs, pancake dies and an electric 20 ton hydraulic press for cutting your earring shapes, annealing to prepare your earrings for texturing and forming with various tools and the Keum-Boo process, fusing gold to silver, which is the highlight of this workshop! Finishing techniques will include filing and using a Jool Tool for smooth metal edges, patina, buffing, and more.
