This is one of my favourite workshops, but with lockdown I decided to adapt it into a kit.
I love experimenting with colours and textures and the end results are always stunning.
Using anodised aluminium, you will experiment with different ways of colouring aluminium. You will use a variety of techniques ranging from ink dyes to rubber stamping, there's a How To booklet included, as well as access to an online video.
If you already have your own jewellery tools, then this kit contains all the aluminium bits and pieces you need to make your own colourful aluminium jewellery.
Full sheet of 0.5mm anodised aluminium, which is approx 40 pieces, which in turn will make lots of lovely jewellery. You can get multiple items out of one piece. You will probably only use about a 1/4 sheet at a time when colouring, so make sure you keep your remaining aluminium wrapped up in tissue paper and in an airtight container.
