Sunday 12th December 10-5pm 2021
Workshop 925 based at The Mayford Centre, just outside of Woking and very close to Guildford.
Unit F9 The Mayford Centre,
What does the day involve?
This workshop is the perfect chance to develop some core jewellery making skills. A key aspect of this course is also to explore the idea of jewellery design. You will be provided with a set of raw materials to work with (listed below). With these materials you can begin to design your pendant, considering shapes, sizes, connections and soldering techniques. We have put together an inspiration Pinterest board to help you begin to formulate some ideas for the day should you wish to plan ahead.
The frame pendant can be the concept of a scene you create within your square, triangular, oval, round, or pebble frame such as a city scape or landscape, or organic forms, geometric shapes, or anything else which you may design. As always, we are flexible to work with your ideas and will help you develop the skills to turn your 2D designs into 3D form.
Skills you will cover include design techniques, piercing, texturing, soldering and polishing.
Please do not book if you do not agree with our Coronavirus procedures.
We do not require you to have any experience, this course is perfect for any ability, we will guide you in terms of design and demonstrations to bring your design to life. For those with experience, it provides you with an opportunity to design a more complex pendant with different aspects to it which may challenge you more in terms of piercing out and soldering. Those with no experience will be guided to make more simplistic designs so that the soldering and piercing aspect is achievable – we will guide you on this on the day.
What is included?:
1.2mm Round Wire: 13cm
0.7mm silver sheet: 4cm x 4cm
2mm square wire: 15cm
Please feel free to bring along any additional materials you may have already (from previous courses with us, or from your own workshop if you have experience) as you may wish to build up layers for a more detailed design.
We do sell a wide range of silver at the workshop which you can purchase on the day, but please note, we do not stock everything, so if you have a very specific idea, please let us know beforehand.
