Emma Welsh teaches traditional goldsmithing/Jewellery making techniques to a high standard. Her fully equipped workshop is located at Arnup Studios in Holtby
During this relaxed one day workshop will learn all the techniques you need to create your own stunning and perfectly fitting, Sterling silver bangle.
This is a group workshop for a maximum of four people. For those interested in one to one tuition please see my Private tuition workshop listed separately.
Bangles can be made in a slave bangle style, in a round or oval shape or you have the popular option of making a torque style bangle. You’ll also experiment with a range of techniques to add textures or stamped words to your work allowing you to be creative with your own unique design.
Throughout the day Emma will guide you through each stage of the process and demonstrate every step allowing you to complete all your own work.
You will learn to measure, cut, form, texture, solder, finish and polish your work and take home a beautiful Bangle you can wear with pride.
A typical workshop is 10am-5pm including a one hour break for lunch. Occasionally the class might run over time depending on the complexity of the design.
