This facilitated and hands-on metalworking session will immerse participants in the skills and techniques of the Bronze Age gold-worker.

Drawing inspiration from the Mold Gold Cape, a unique ceremonial gold cape made in the Early Bronze Age, makers will explore the skills of embossing in sheet metal with bead designs and motifs, learning while working.

Talk about challenges together and take-away your creations!
