Immerse yourself in the ancient jewelry technique of filigree and bring it into the present with this three-day workshop. Students will learn techniques for twisting and preparing filigree wires, weaving and intertwining forms, and filling in designs. Contemporary jeweler Valentina Caprini, who is visiting from Italy, will provide hands-on guidance through every step of the process. Students will have the chance to create a wearable piece of silver jewelry that interlaces the centuries-old technique with their own contemporary design. 

This workshop is open to all students with previous soldering experience.
