For Two Sold-Out Workshops
Sept. 12 - 13, 2019
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
In this sold-out workshop students will learn all the basics of Keum-boo: rolling 24k gold or fine silver foil, applying it to three dimensional, flat and textured metal surfaces, and techniques for finishing.
This workshop will focus on ways to make tools and jigs to form three dimensional shapes and unique findings including ear wires, linkage systems, and clasps. Students will make a series of tools that will give you time saving ways of measuring, cutting, connecting and forming sheet and wire accurately in coils or circles and straight lengths.
