KEUM-BOO WORKSHOP

$160.00

Keum-Boo Workshop

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 from 10am to 6pm

Keum-Boo is an ancient Korean technique of fusing thin sheets of pure GOLD onto silver. Because of the small amount of 24 kt. precious metal used in this process, Keum-Boo is a more economical method for accenting silver jewelry with glimmering hints of gold.

Demonstrations will be given on cutting various shapes and patterns out of thin gold sheet, fusing the gold onto silver, and constructing basic jewelry components.

Each student will leave the workshop with finished silver earrings and a pendant using the Keum-Boo method.

Beginning to advanced jewelry students welcome!

All materials are included in the workshop.

There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. Bring your own sack lunch or grab lunch in the area.

Fee: $160.00 per student, includes materials
