Playing with Fire to Make Copper Jewellery



This workshop is a great introduction to the magical, mysterious, centuries old world of metalsmithing.

You will find out why fire is an essential ingredient to jewellery making and use it to make a pair of circular and/or domed earrings of your chosen combination and size.

You will start with a copper sheet and transform this using fire and a variety of silversmithing tools to create a unique set of earrings (or a pendant, if you prefer).

Health and Safety is important and I'll give guidelines as to what to wear.

A minimum of two people is needed to run the course and there's a maximum of four attendants.

Please contact me and we'll arrange a date and time to suit.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

My son (12 years old) and I had a great time and we made some lovely earrings. It was fun and we both learned a lot!

Spent a lovely afternoon with Helga in this workshop. Left with decorated cards and the tools to make more at home.
Helga was a delight to work with and provided guidance, hints, tips and encouragement.

Thanks Lexie, it was great having you all in my studio, making Joyous Dots your own with individual interpretations.

I undertook the course with Helga online and it worked really well. Everything was sent in the post and Helga was really warm and inclusive, with my 4 year old wanting to join in! I enjoyed the course and learning the relaxing art of dots and also seeing the variety of work and art that can be achieved with so little. I can't wait to attend another of Helga's courses. Thank you!

Response from Colourbuzz:

Thanks Kristy, it was lovely working with you and your creative 4 year old!
