May 03, 2016 - May 24, 2016

Experience the beauty of working with Mokume Gane, a Japanese metalsmithing technique that literally translates into “eye of the wood”. This process manipulates multi-layered billets of different color metals by punching and grinding to produce amazing patterns and textures that resemble wood, smoke, and sedimentary layers. A demonstration of making a billet will be covered. Students will receive a laminated stack of copper and brass to be manipulated by punching, forging, twisting and filing to expose a pattern. No experience necessary.
