I’m teaching on of my favourite techniques in just over a week – Keum Boo!

Just in case you have missed all the blog posts, newsletters, facebook posts etc etc that I’ve written on the subject before, Keum Boo is an ancient Korean technique, and the name literally translates as “attached gold”. Sheets of 24k gold foil, thick enough to be cut with scissors craft punches or torn, are applied to fine silver. No solder is involved – when the two precious metals reach the correct temperature and you burnish them they bond together at the molecular level – and it is MAGICAL! I love using this technique in my work and love teaching it as everyone comes up with different ideas, different designs to make, and the look on each person’s face as the gold bonds to the silver for the first time is fantastic. Don’t just take my word for it though – have a look at the lovely reviews past students have left on the website (scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on ‘reviews’)

There are still a few places left on the workshop, so if you’d like to join us the full details including how to enrol can be found here!

P.S. The top photo is of my work, but the other two are examples of students’ work from previous workshops.
