Intro
Portugal has a very rich and antique tradition in filigree. While this technique is nowhere near exclusive to our culture, there are a few technical and style characteristics that make it easily recognisable and unique. Those same characteristics make it an excellent starting point to start developing your own personal style.
In this workshop, I will teach the participants the beauty and technique of traditional Portuguese filigree until they are familiar and autonomous with it. The students will be given several choices of exercises of different complexity. I will let them explore the different techniques to fill the structure, embellishments and structure making. There will not be a lot of freedom to modify the original designs, as there are things I need to teach that need to be done in a certain kind of way.


Requirements: The student must have patience and dexterity for extremely detailed work with fine wires. Everything is very small, so it’s also mandatory that the student can see perfectly at very short distances. Plus it's preferable to have experience in jewellery making but not necessary. 


Dates: 9 - 10 November, 9:30 to 18:30 (one hour for lunch)

Price: 180 € (course). 
Included: Tools on loan. Wire and solder to make the course project(s) with an excess to repeat the exercises at home.
Not included: Additional filigree wire or solder. Tools will be available for purchase at the end of the course
Duration: The course is a total of 18 hours.
Minimum number of students: 4
Maximum number of students: 8
Language: English or Portuguese.


You do not need to bring any tools, but if you particularly like something you normally use, feel free to bring it with you.
 
If these dates are not convenient, send me an e-mail so we can book another edition.
