Intro
Since about a decade I have been teaching workshops in Filigree in various countries. For me it is wonderful to see, how students transform the old technique of Filigree into something new, contemporary and often so playful. I am an admirer of old craft and knowledge. It is my mission to keep this old trade alive and thriving, and to counteract the general pressure to do things efficiently, economically and fast. Filigree is well suited for this lesson, it takes time!
The workshop holds by ISA from Aug.12th to Aug.16th - Filigree, spinning it further with Susanne Matsché is still available to apply.
