Well, I am impressed!
This weekend we had a lovely group of highly motivated individuals, mostly with no previous experience in making, who all went smiling home with rattling pockets and jingling fingers – proud makers of some really fine pieces of jewellery!
The focus was on texturing techniques, and we also introduced some basic forging processes. Several students wanted to add copper to their silver rings for their final design, and so after initial experimentation, by popular demand, we also introduced sweat soldering.
Thanks to Angelina, Vina, Sue, Nadine, Joyce, Nick, Michel, Stacey and Wakako for making this a fun weekend. You all came with great ideas, and your achievements in such a short time are astounding!
Thanks too to Becky for her expert assistance
If you like what you see and would like to try your hand at designing and making jewellery we have a range of excellent classes and short courses organised for the coming months… check out our prospectus here
