Silver Passport Workshops


Inlay is the permanent embedding of one material in another. This Silver Passport workshop will explore methods of inlay silver into copper to create a patterned blank. This blank can then be used in your original design. There are two metal inlay techniques that we will explore in this workshop, mechanical and molten.
