What to wear

Please make sure that you have a hairband to tie your hair back and do not wear floaty skirts, really loose fitting clothes, scarves or open toe shoes, as we will be in a workshop environment.

What you will make

You will make a range of samples, in copper, using the techniques shown and complete a workbook of processes. You will complete at least two pieces of wearable silver jewellery within the 10 weeks.

If you have a design in mind

If you already have a design in mind please contact Beccy to discuss the viability and what you might need to purchase to make it.
