This class will be on making Damascus at a beginning to intermediate level. We will explore the common patterns techniques as well as some mosaic patterns and how to apply them, specifically in the use of jewelry. Although this class is focused on jewelry, the techniques can be applied in other areas like knifemaking. Each student should come away with 2-3 finished billets that you can further refine on your own. You will learn how to prepare the material, several different patterns, the basics of grinding, etching the Damascus, and finishing.
