Expand your jewellery making skills...
Join others with an interest in silver jewellery making, and expand your skills with techniques such as organic casting, reticulation, cabochon stone-setting, intricate piercing work, and wire jig chain-making. This 3-day workshop is a 'choose your own adventure' style experience. While I will provide demonstrations and reference materials, you select which projects you are interested in pursuing and focus on those with all the support you need.
At the end of the Summer School, you can expect to have completed up to 3 intricate, advanced level projects and have samples pieces from other techniques I demonstrate.
What to bring
- Pencil, paper and scissors
- Any metal and stones that you have already that you will need for your selected projects
- Your ideas, inspiration and project drawings
- Wear closed-in shoes, no loose clothing and tie up long hair
- Bring your own lunch
- Students need to be healthy and fit as a degree of hand strength and steadiness are required in silversmithing.
