Classic filigree

Filigree is an ancient technique that is widespread in many cultures. In this workshop we will look at the 'open' version of filigree: a thicker outer thread filled with thin twisted wire without a background. The challenge with filigree is to completely fill a plane with curls and solder it all together in 1 time.


The studio closes from 13h till 14h for a lunch break, there are several eating facilities nearby.



  • sterling silver square wire, 1 by 1 m, 1 meter
  • fine silver round wire, 0.5 mm, 4 meter
  • sterling silver round wire, 0.3 mm, 2 meter
  • use of large studio equipment

Bring yourself:

  • an apron
  • borax
  • flat charcoal block
  • files
  • tweezers
