In-person workshop at Danaca Design in Seattle, WA
Taught by Anne Wolf
June 19-23, 2023
In this action-packed 5 days all aspects of mokume gane will be covered, from fusing to patterning to patinas. On day 1 we’ll stack and fuse billets using the precise solid-state diffusion bonding method. Day 2 we’ll forge and roll the billets down to workable material. Days 3 and 4 will be an enticing smorgasbord of patterning techniques, including the cherry-blossom pattern (not offered in Anne’s online classes). Finally on day 5 she’ll share mokume-specific soldering and finishing techniques, and we’ll end with some knock-your-socks off patina recipes. You’ll leave with detailed handouts to practice and repeat the processes, equipment list to fuse your own mokume at home, fused mokume, patterned mokume, and maybe even a finished jewelry piece or two.
