ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
A new course for 2019, under Ella's expert guidance design and create a lovely Bangle and if there's time, some other jewellery pieces too, such as ear rings or pendants.
During the first part of the day you will learn how to apply textures and patterns to sheet metal using traditional machinery called 'rolling mills' , followed by using various techniques to create your jewellery.
You might wish to bring along some of your own patterns / textures to work with such as lace, stencils or foliage, especially if they hold a particular meaning for you.
This class covers a broad range of skills and is suitable for beginners as well as attendees with previous silver or jewellery making experience.
There will be an extra materials charge of £15 - 20 payable directly to the tutor on the day for the pewter materials, depending on what you manage to make.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
