Granulation is the ancient technique of surface embellishment using tiny spherical granules of gold. One of today?s modern masters of granulation, Kent Raible, leads this hands-on survey of this intricate process. Through lectures, demonstrations, and lots of time at the bench, you will experience the step-by-step procedures for this technique. The class will include making a special alloy of 18k gold for granulation, and how to produce, apply, and fuse granules, and finish the work. Students design and create one or more pieces to take home. Students will need to bring at least one half ounce of fine gold.

Prerequisite: Fabrication 3 or experience.

Kent Raible is a German-trained master goldsmith specializing in 18k gold granulation. He has gained international prominence for his elaborate jewelry and objects, which are included in major collections, such as the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.
