Keum Boo is the ancient, intriguing and surprisingly simple Korean technique of bonding pure gold to the surface of silver by means of heat and pressure, allowing you to add decorative accents to your jewellery pieces.
This technique may be used in combination with various texturing techniques to add fascinating qualities to the metal surface.
You will create decorative pieces from which to make jewellery. If time allows, we will investigate the process of adding foil to finished pieces.
Your tutor will work with you as a group and as individuals to support and guide you through your learning.
We will supply all the tools and equipment needed for jewellery making, as well as gold foil.
Participants must provide their own silver, please bring FINE SILVER to work with. The prepatory process of depletion gilding will be demonstrated, however this is time consuming and will limit the amount of pieces you will be able to make.
