A One day course - Mokumegane Ring

What is Mokumegane? It is a Japanese traditional technique for making colored alloy (mixed different kinds of metals).
The technique was originally produced in the Middle East and was developed as a technique of making the Japanese sword (Nipponto) in Muromachi period, in about from 14Cto 16C, after having been introduced through the Silk Road from the MiddleEast to Japan.
The technique used to have been in secret, however, is popular to use Mokumegane for jewelry making at the moment.
We hope you will not miss this course and would like you to experience another aspect of Japanese culture when you visit to Japan.
There are two types of course covered jewelry making by Mokumegane. Everyone taking the course will be able to make and have your original ring.
