For people with knowledge of jewelry techniques with the aim of increasing his/her skills.

Description

Forging is one of the oldest methods with which man has worked the metal.

By hitting the metal with different hammers, on different tases or anvils, the shape and elongation of the metal is controlled, achieving a harmonious transition between the thick and thin parts of a piece. In this way they can be made from large format works to delicate details.

Goals

Give a wide knowledge of the forging process applied to jewellery so that the students can be capable of express an idea or concept.

Learn a way to create volumes and forms using the technique, and at the same time explore the possibilities that it offers to get textures, various metal thicknesses and resistance of the forged pieces.

Contents

Metallurgy techniques: Quenching, tempering and annealing, processes applied to forging whose characteristic is the transformation of the internal structure of noble metals.

Processes applied to forging: sharpen, stretch, laminate, upset forging, twist, roll, press and impression.
Knowledge and fabrication of tools, anvils and hammers.
