The main goal of this course is to learn the basics of metal work for creating ceramic jewelry, particularly porcelain. The course is essentially practical, based on experimentation with the main basic techniques of jewelry: measurements and marking, perforated internal and external, filing and polishing, firing, pickling, welding, etc. In a complementary way, some pieces of porcelain will be processed in order to practice assembly and final finishes. During the course, theoretical aspects on the characteristics and type of ceramic materials and metals will also be provided.
Will be 5 days where you will face different practical exercises such as the creation of strips, wires and plates of metal, the learning of welding with silver, perforated, polishing, sanding, realization of the pieces in porcelain designed and fired and finally, assembled with the metal parts. The materials will be provided and each student will have his work table with the necessary equipment. Everyone can take home not only their knowledge but also their finished works.
