Silver earrings workshop

X

Description

Learn how to cut, shape and texture sterling silver sheet and wire to make three or four (or maybe more!) pairs of stunning stud and drop earrings - perfect for yourself or for presents! The record for the number of earrings made in a workshop is 14 pairs - what will you make? This workshop is suitable for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. In particular, the earrings workshop will teach delicate soldering skills to attach the stud fittings and earwires to your designs. Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need. Joanne Tinley is a jewellery designer and qualified teacher offering workshops in Hampshire. Please see my other course listings for further workshops available, or get in touch for more details.

What's included in the price?

Cost of the materials is payable on the day. The cost will depend on the amount of silver that you use but the earrings do not tend to use much silver. Previous students have spent approximately £10-£15 on silver. Tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits are in plentiful supply, but please bring your own lunch. We are a peanut-free venue, thank you.
