At this beginners' jewellery workshop you will learn some jewellery making techniques including sawing, texturing, soldering and make a pendant or earrings.
This class is suitable for those who are new to jewellery making and would like to try something new. The small class numbers will enable you to have lots of hands-on tutoring & guidance throughout the workshop and finish with a piece of jewellery you will be proud of. You will start by experimenting with copper and brass and create different textures, using hammers and punches.
You can try out other jewellery techniques: annealing, soldering, sawing, filing and sanding and then move on to design your piece, either continuing to work in copper/brass or use silver (for an extra charge).
The £45 fee includes everything you need to produce your own piece of jewellery. All tools, equipment and tuition as well as refreshments are included. Silver sheet, chains and findings will be available to buy at an additional charge (depending on the size your require).
Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil and an idea of a shape you would like to make into a piece of jewellery e.g. a heart, bird, leaf, flower etc. A small simple outline drawing is all that's required.
Children 12 and over can attend with an adult.
We have a range of volunteering opportunities on offer. For as little as a couple of hours you could help out with the remnant shop, show visitors around or take sales from the gift shop, we would love to welcome you onboard!
