Hollow Forms Masterclass - 27th & 28th April
Learn how to make beautiful hollow form beads and pendants in this two day masterclass. I only run this workshop every couple of years, so don't miss out!
In this workshop I will teach you three different ways of creating hollow forms, and go through as many variations of the techniques as time will allow. Hollow beads and pendants are a great way to create tactile, large but light pieces of jewellery!
We will also cover other silversmithing techniques such as texturing using a rolling mill, sawing and piercing and of course soldering. Previous experience of soldering is a requirement of the workshop.
Only 6 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need and so that everyone gets enough time using the equipment. This class is not suitable for under 16 year olds.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.
The workshop fee can be paid in two equal installments by arrangement, with the second installment due no later than two weeks before the class.
Date and Venue
10am-5pm Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th April at The Sorting Office Studios, 37 Wells Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.
