Join us for a FREE talk by Milt Fischbein, Filigree Artist and Educator. Milt will talk about the history of filigree jewelry and how he got interested in making filigree. He will explain the process for making filigree jewelry and will do a few demonstrations on how filigree was made before we had modern conveniences such as flex shafts and electricity. He will also show us some intricate filigree pieces of his own work and from his personal filigree collection.
Milt is an independent jewelry artist and teacher. He discovered his love of working with precious metals over 25 years ago. Milt is one of only a handful of metal artists in North America who focuses their studio practice on the design and fabrication of filigree. Milt has been passing on his knowledge of filigree through workshops and lectures. He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is a professional member of the Alberta Craft Council.
