Mokume Gane: Wood Grain Pattern in Metal

Taught by: 

Mokume Gane, or wood grain metal, is a traditional Japanese technique of fusing together two different metals in alternating layers to create a solid block or billet. The billet can then be made into sheet metal with a variety of patterns by repeatedly carving through layers and reducing the thickness. Students will learn a low-tech, low-cost method of making Mokume Gane using a refractory brick mini furnace and soldering torch. Students will make their own copper and silver patterned billet and then finish with a seamless forged band ring. Soldering experience required. No supply fee; an instructor kit fee of $120 is payable during the class.
