An introduction to classical Japanese metalworking. Participants will create 8 chisels including the katakiri chisel and v-chisel, and learn wire inlay and carving. In Ford's words: "Traditionally the katakiri chisel was used to create the beautiful chiselled pictures that mimic ink painting, but in a creative metalworkers hands the possibilities are endless."
