There are still some space
available to sign up!!

                                        Nunome Zogan (cloth texture                                                   overlay) is one of the traditional                                                 Japanese inlay techniques. History                                           of the Japanese Nunome inlay                                                  technique begins from Damascus,                                           Syria. The technique, called            

                                       “Damascene,” came through the                                              Silk Road into Japan. The most                                                  common Nunome zogan process uses gold or silver foil on steel or iron. In this class, you will be learning School Nunome zogan. This technique is inlaying onto non-ferrous metal, such as silver, brass, or Japanese copper alloy (Shibuichi and Shakudo) instead of steel; however, the process can be used on steel. This class will start out making your own Nunome chisel and a hammer handle. Traditional Japanese patina process will also be covered. Great for the beginner and experienced maker alike, this class covers the basics, but also offers the opportunity for skill refinement for more advanced students. This class requires a $200 materials fee to be paid on the first day of class
