Filigree is a technique used in jewelry and metalworking to form intricate twisted fine gold or silver wire designs. 

All workshops are interactive, and are recorded for viewing at your own pace. Participants have recording access for 45 days.
Students will learn flat surface filigree techniques and wire fabrication, which includes creating filigree wire, setting up for soldering, and soldering thin silver wire. Students will explore more possibilities of filigree work, and how to form and fabricate wire into dimensional work, which include making models, forming, and problem-solving for tricky soldering positions.
Soldering skills are helpful for this workshop.

Outline and Course Outcomes:
- Bend wire with pliers with less mark and clean up.
- Make filigree wire with drill, vise, and rolling mill.
- Set up for soldering filigree or small wire work.
- Make different filigree patterns using wire.
- Solder method for filigree, and to solder something together in different size. 
- Model making for desired design.
- Forming wire into dimensions
- Problem solving for tricky soldering positions.
