This five-day hands-on workshop will investigate and compare various means of performing granulation. Participants will explore simple torch firing methods as well as looking at the use of kilns and fusion furnaces. The emphasis will be on learning the “Hows” and “Whys” of this ancient technique and its applications for the contemporary metalsmith. We will look at performing granulation primarily in silver, but will also discuss gold. Working in gold will be strictly optional.
