Keum Boo Techniques

Jewellery Techniques : 1-Day Course

All tutors work are professional jewellers or are jewellery trade specialists who are willing to share their expertise and trade secrets.


Course Description

This course is designed to introduce you or help you refine techniques for Keum Boo (Kum Boo) which is the ancient Korean technique of applying thin gold foil permanently to the surface of silver in Jewellery using the technique of Fusing.

Using gold foil on silver in this way can provide a richness of gold without the expense of working entirely in gold, this is also a useful way to add a little extra value to silver items.

You may bring your own sample silver jewellery items to practise Keum Boo techniques on if you wish.


Precious Metals and Gold Foil are not included in the course fee due to the fluctuations in bullion prices.

Course Feedback


I have learned so much in my time at Katherine’s studio. Her teaching and demonstrating of Keum Boo was just brilliant and suited me perfectly and I came away with lots of new knowledge and new techniques for which I am eager to start at home. This will certainly enhance the jewellery I make. 


Thank you for facilitating my time with Katherine.


My day with Katherine was excellent so a definite 5*
