Christmas Gift-Making Workshop
Saturday 18 Dec 2021 10am - 4pm Add to calendar
Spend a day crafting gorgeous lasting gifts for your loved ones, or for yourselves!
These classes are an annual special event with our very clever tutors who will help guide you in creating simple jewellery items in silver, copper or brass.
Beginners can be given simple projects like earrings (studs or drops), rings or stacking rings, and simple pendants using texturing and cutting techniques that are very achievable. More advanced students are able to work on their own ideas, and be assisted by your tutor where needed. Some basic materials are supplied as part of your course costs, and additional materials are available if you wish to make larger items or multiple pieces.
Sets of stacking rings are excellent gifts and super quick to make, you will need to know what ring size you want to make - we recommend borrowing a ring from your giftee, or seeing if they fit one of your rings for size. Earrings are another really great gift, no sizing is needed, and you will be able to make multiple sets if you keep your designs simple. Pendants can be as simple as textured silver discs or rings that hang on a chain or cord, or you can use tiny letter stamps to create a message for your loved one. Chains and cords are available for purchase if needed.
Please note that these classes need to be flexible to work with the range of students and their ideas, so bring a few ideas to class, and your tutor will help you decide what plans will work best for you.
