Have you ever considered armour as works of art – sculptures in steel? Discover more about the art of the armourer and take a fresh look at some of our most decorative pieces, including 16th-century Renaissance armour.

During the seminar you will examine such decorating techniques as embossing, engraving, etching, damascening and colouring with heat and gold.
