Advanced Mosaic Damascus
Class runs: April 28- May 1
Material fee: $200
Skill level: Intermediate and up, significant basic Damascus skill required
In this workshop Jay will be guiding students through his well known mosaic Damascus pattern. This is a workshop that would be perfect for any student who feels comfortable with basic ladder, raindrop and twist patterns and wants to take their pattern welding to the next level. Every aspect of making mosaic pattered material will be covered, from material selection to planning how to best utilize this material in a finished blade. There will be an opportunity to experiment and achieve different results using the same basic process. This is not a beginner pattern welding class. Students should be comfortable with making Damascus and be familiar with power hammers, presses and shop tools. The minimum prerequisite is our 3 day basic Damascus workshop.
