JEWELLERY MAKING WORKSHOPS
Fancy turning jewellery designer for the day and crafting your own unique handmade piece?
Then join me for a fun and creative two hour workshop carving a design in jewellers wax, which will then be cast in silver. No previous experience is needed as I’ll guide you carefully through the process from start to finish.
You'll learn about the ancient technique of lost wax casting and use a range of simple tools to create stunning effects and textures. We'll break in midway through for a glass of fizz (or non alcoholic alternative) and a chance to admire our creations.
By the end of the session you will have created a wax master which will be sent away to London’s famous Hatton Garden for casting in silver. I will then hand finish your piece according to your specifications and post it back to you in a beautifully packaged gift box.
You can choose to make either make a beautiful silver ring (up to approx. 8mm wide); or ONE of your choice of 1) A large pendant; 2) Two smaller layering necklaces; or a charm bracelet with two charms and a hand stamped initial disc.
The workshop costs £70 which includes materials, tuition, refreshments and casting your piece/s in silver. Should you wish to have your finished piece(s) plated in yellow or rose gold then an extra £30 is payable on the day.
All workshops take place at Kiln Workshop, 63 North Road, Bristol:

Thursday 8 October, 7,30pm - SOLD OUT
