There are 3 classes to choose from:
Ring in a Day - £85
Pendants & Earrings - £85
Bracelets & Bangles - £95
I also run an open class where you can make any of the above . . . or something completely different.
Prices for the 1 day jewellery making classes include all materials and payment is taken upon booking to confirm your place.
In each of the classes you will be introduced to the basic techniques of working with silver and making jewellery, including:
Cutting and filing (with piercing saw and files) - Metal forming using hammers and pliers - Soldering - Surface manipulation (texturing & decoration) - Using findings - Finishing and polishing
Basic Outline of the Day (10.00 am - 6.00 pm)
· Health and safety briefing
· Introduction to the workshop and tools
· Demonstration & practise of basic techniques
· Design ideas and prototypes
· Making of final piece using learnt techniques
· Finishing and polishing
The material allowance is £15 per student for Ring in a Day, Pendants & Earrings and the open class or £25 per student for Bracelets & Bangles. This is included within the total price of the class. If the item you wish to make uses more silver than this it will be charged in addition, to be paid on the day, at the going price.
At the end of the day you will take away an original, handmade piece of jewellery to be treasured forever. There is a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and class sizes are kept small so that teaching can be adapted to suit the needs and pace of each student. Free tea, coffee and biscuits (or cake if you're lucky!) are available in the workshop.
Very often my dog Ted is at the workshop with me so please do let me know if you have any concerns about dogs and he will be happy to stay home lazing in bed!
