Courses start at 10am and run no later than 4.30pm with a short break for lunch in Corfe Mullen, Dorset. This course is suitable for all abilities from absolute beginners to advanced, we run small classes of up to 4 students. Bring along your own seaglass (Jules will check and let you know if its suitable to use) or choose a piece from Sea & Solders collection. You can choose a course to make your own seaglass ring or pendant in 925 sterling silver. There is also the option to make a silver bangle or cuff too (with a additional charge of £15). Unfortunately due to the time involved in making a piece of seaglass jewellery you will only have time to make a piece of jewellery with one piece of seaglass, making earrings or cuff links is difficult in the time frame for beginners. A fun relaxed day, with refreshments and cakes provided. (Please note lunch is not provided) Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult who is also booked onto the course.
