Forging a Silver Spoon


   

 

Having designed an own spoon, we start with a 4 mm thick rectangular piece of silver and shape it with the hammer to the desired form by contracting, stretching, broadening, sinking and planishing the metal. After the tiring hammer work we file our spoon and finish it with pumice and emery cloth.

Places are limited to four participants per workshop.

Metal Inlay – Keum-Boo


   

 

Workshop instructor Matthias Lehr, gold- and silversmith in Nuremberg, gives an introduction to the Korean inlay technique named keum-boo. In contrast to western inlay methods, keum-boo is characterized by the application of very thin sheets of precious metal. In combination with a specific roughening of the basic metal surface these sheets will be put in place just by hammering. No complex carving and undercutting is needed. The designs can be applied directly after cutting out.
Furthermore, we learn the classic western style inlay with precious metals in carved and undercut areas. All special tools (chisels) for both techniques are first made by forging carbon steel rods, grinding and sharpening them ready to use.

Places are limited to five participants per workshop.

The workshop is held in German.
