Traditional Japanese Metal Inlay Jewelry Making Workshop


Explore an ancient art of Japanese  Zogan. A word 'Zogan' means inlay in Japanese. In this two-day workshop, you will learn the process of the traditional Japanese metal inlay techniques, Ten-zogan(dot inlay), Sen-Zogan(line inlay), and Hira-Zogan (shape inlay). 

After practicing on copper, you will gain skills using Japaese copper alloys, such as SHIBUICHI (copper & silver alloy) and create your own inlaid pendant top! You will finish with a traditional patination process call, Niiro. Great for beginners and exerienced makers alike. This class covers basics but also offers the opportunity for skill refinement. Requires previous basic metalsmithing skills.
