Embossed Earrings and Pendant Workshop - Friday 5th June 2020
By the end of this workshop you will have made two beautiful pairs of earrings or two lovely pendants - or one of each, the choice is yours!
We will be using the rolling mill to emboss simple shapes of silver with beautiful patterns, allowing you to learn the basics of using this fantastic piece of equipment.
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 workshop will teach delicate soldering skills to attach the stud fittings and earwires to your designs, but don't worry if you haven't done these before as plenty of help will be given!
A shorter workshop, timed perfectly to fit between the school run.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need. 14 to 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult. Bookings for children younger than this need to be discussed with me first.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.
Date and Venue
10am-2.30pm Friday 5th June 2020 at The Sorting Office Studios, 37 Wells Road, Eastleigh Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.
Cost of the materials is payable on the day. The cost will depend on the amount of silver that you use but these do not tend to use much silver. Previous students have spent approximately £10-£12 on silver plus £3.50 if you also need a chain for your pendant.
Tools and Equipment
The workshop fee includes use of all the tools and equipment needed. All workshops include worksheets to take home with you and discuss tools, equipment, materials and health and safety considerations.
Cancellations of workshop places and private tuition bookings within two weeks of the event will forfeit the workshop/private tuition fee unless I am able to find someone to take your place. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.
