Russian Filigree Workshop in Picturesque Door County


Join me for 3 days of Russian Filigree

at the Peninsula School of Art in Picturesque

Door County, Wisconsin

June 26-28, 2014
I'm very fortunate to teach workshops at so many of the premiere venues for metalsmithing in the USA. Besides having a lovely studio, the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek, WI is located in Door County, one of the most gorgeous parts of the country, and the whole area is art focused with many galleries and artists' studios nearby.

Learn the art of Russian filigree through extensive demonstrations and hands-on exploration. Make a pendant, a ring, and a large spherical bead while exploring more sculptural possibilities with the process. Most importantly learn the necessary tips and tricks to ensure success and fun through this exquisite technique. Participants must know how to solder with a torch. Enrollment is limited to ensure adequate work time and attention from the instructor.

Victoria Lansford has generated an international revival of nearly lost metalsmithing techniques through her artwork, publications, workshops, and passion for creating.  Her award winning artwork has appeared in numerous juried exhibitions, books, and magazines, including the Lark 500 series, Metalsmith, and on Home & Garden Television. She created the metals program and served as head of the Metalsmithing Department at Spruill Center for the Arts, Atlanta and was an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee.  
    Her instructional DVD and book series, Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters,featuring the titles Russian Filigree, Rings, All Chained Up, Eastern Repouss√© and Chasing, and her iPhone™ app, iMakeJewelry have sold throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.  Victoria lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
