This is a class for beginners, introducing you to the art of making jewellery. You will learn how to cut and shape silver, applying textures with a variety of tools and rolling techniques, soldering with a small blow torch to bond two pieces of metal together, and the process of ‘cleaning up’ your samples to give them a polished finish. Each day you will aim to leave with a finished piece, with an extra session to catch up on creative endeavors or if ahead to create a new piece of your choice.
Silver is included for the 4 projects, and further an be purchased if creating larger or additional pieces.
