Join us this coming Friday! Yehuda Tassa will be giving a lecture on Yemenite history and their arts. The reception begins at 6:30, artist’s talk begins at 7 p.m. in Cabrillo College’s VAPA room 1001.
Yehuda Tassa began to work in Yemenite Filigree at the age of six. Taught his father, a well-known jeweler in Yemen, he worked in the family jewelry business for sixteen years. Yehuda revitalized his ‘lost art’ recently and began prolifically producing both ancient and modern filigree designs. He creates jewelry and teaches at several locations in Northern California, incorporating both ancient and modern tools and techniques into his filigree and granulation workshops.
