Granulation is one of the oldest, most intriguing, most enigmatic goldsmithing methods. This form of art jewellery reached a high expression of beauty and craftsmanship thousands of years ago and still does. This course will provide you with a brief introduction and a historical background on granulation and will teach you all the secrets of this unique metal technique with its various forms of technical alchemic welding. To start, you will study various techniques for forming flawlessly spherical grains, classifying them according to size, and getting them ready for welding. After that, the emphasis of the training will be on the various techniques for preparing the grains (using oxidative deposits or “chrysocolla”) and applying them to the jewellery. Finally, at the end of this fascinating journey, you’ll learn how to fix/weld the grains to the jewel, using both fire and oven techniques. The granulation course is not just a simple academic demonstration, but it’s a course that will allow you to manipulate such an amazing technique and adapt it into a contemporary jewel.
The Workshop will be confirmed once the minimum number of students will be reached.
