Mokume Gane: Making Billets and Patterning Sheet with Visiting Artist David Barnhill
The amazing David Barnhill, Master of Mokume and collaborator with David Huang in the fabulous "Layered Resplendence" series, is coming to Studio JSD to teach his craft!
Learn how to successfully create and fuse billets of layered Fine Silver and Copper by way of liquid phase bonding. After the billet has been fused we will quickly compress it and then it's on to patterning! The goal of the class is for students to leave with at least one successful Mokume sheet and a good understanding of how to easily create their own billets and complex Mokume patterns.
Class fee includes materials to make and pattern one fine silver and copper billet. Metal to make additional billets may be purchased from the instructor or students may bring their own; 20g or thicker Fine Silver and 16g copper (must be scratch free).
