Learn how to make a silver pendant or ring using traditional jewellery techniques including planishing, soldering and texturing. It’s a fun evening which gives you a taster of jewellery making and the chance to use basic tools and techniques.
Dates and cost
Thursday, 9 May, from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
Cost: £35 per person
The course is limited to 11 spaces (maximum). The course is suitable for ages 12 and up, both total beginners and those with some experience.
What you need to bring:
An apron (or old clothes)
Notepad (blank page) or sketchbook
Pen and pencil
Any jewellery that you have made before
Textures such as skeleton leaves, fabric off cuts, textured paper
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. We will use torches and some acids, which can damage clothes so an apron or pinny is recommended as well as remembering not to wear your favourite jeans!
