For people who want to get started and get a solid training in the traditional craft of jewellery. It is also suitable for initiates and professionals in the sector who want to increase and improve skills.

Description

Civilization and perhaps humanity itself was born of fire, and it, of the rubbing of two pieces of wood. Lighting the fire symbolizes the creation par excellence.

The name “Sacador de Fuego” refers to a person that takes the pieces out of the fire. The Sacador de Fuego is a person who produces, develops and ends a jewel. It is a modeler, smelter, stone setter and goldsmith. He has a broad knowledge of the basic and related manufacturing jewelry techniques.

Initiation to jewelry is very important, it is the foundation on which a good development of this art is built. It requires fostering awareness with intention to achieve a dialogue between metal and our hands. In the course, a series of exercises will be carried out that will give the student this important beginning.

The course is a continuous and combined Prototyping or Modeling program, in which different types of exercises are developed and elaborated. You will get the technical foundations to develop the art of jewelry. It is a personalized course, the teacher guides your development individually. You work in a common space, sharing with other students.
