This class is suitable for those who are new to jewellery making and would like to try something new. Jewellery designer and teacher, Sheila Roussel will introduce you to some basic techniques in an informal workshop.
At this beginners' jewellery workshop you will learn some jewellery making techniques including sawing, texturing, soldering and you will make a pendant or earrings. The small group numbers will enable you to have lots of hands-on tutoring and guidance throughout the workshop and finish with a piece of jewellery you will be proud of.
You will start by experimenting with copper and brass and create different textures, using hammers and punches. You can try out other jewellery techniques: annealing, soldering, sawing, filing and sanding and then move on to design your piece, using silver.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The £60 fee includes everything you need to produce your own silver pendant or earrings. All tools, equipment and tuition as well as tea and coffee are included. You will be provided with a piece of sheet silver approximately 2 x 3 cm. Extra silver, if required should you wish to make a larger piece, will be available to buy at an additional charge.
Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil and an idea of a shape you would like to make into a piece of jewellery e.g. a heart, bird, leaf, flower etc. A small simple outline is all that's required.
Please contact me to find out if a date is available. All dates listed are on request.

Sheila was incredibly welcoming, the workshop room was full of tools and equipment and Shelia explained how to use it all. It was great to be given a choice of what to make and Shelia helped us all to develop completely different pieces that we were all very happy with. Thank you very much Sheila for a wonderful experience... we will be back!! Wendy, Vicky and Jenny.
