2023-05-17 - Freya's Fantasy Filigree



Wednesday, May 17-Sunday, May 21, 2023  (9:00 am-Noon, 1:00-5:00 pm)


This is an in-person class held at Vesterheim Folk Art School.


It is said that Freya, the Nordic goddess of love, wagered all to acquire the beautiful Brisingamen necklace fashioned by dwarves. The medieval texts do not describe what the necklace looked like, but we can imagine that Scandinavian filigree work was a signature element. Using twisted fine silver wire, we will create a beautiful pendant fit for a queen! We will use the same tools and techniques of traditional filigree, incorporating a contemporary "twist" in design.


Level of Instruction:

All levels. Previous metalworking experience is recommended but not required. A willingness to work with hand tools and soldering equipment is a must.
