Sunday 29th January 10-5pm
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?
Create your very own silver chain bracelet during this day workshop. Kirsten will guide you through all the processes involved in creating your own design. From cutting, shaping and texturing the silver, through to soldering and polishing. You will create each link and a T bar clasp.
This is a fantastic project to help you learn or improve your soldering skills. If you are looking for some inspiration, we have created a Pinterest board to help inspire some ideas. You will be provided with 1.2mm thick wire for your links. We work really hard to make sure our students love what they create, so if you have a chunkier design idea in mind, please get in touch as the material costs increase and it can be more difficult to create thicker links, so we just need to check it is achievable within the time frame.
None, all abilities are welcomed. We support you throughout the session and provide demonstrations to show you the techniques and steps needed to create your own chain bracelet from start to finish. Our small classes mean we are able to provide each student with the support they require. Students must be 16+ Students aged 14 or 15 are able to attend if accompanied by an adult.
What is included?
All tools and consumables are supplied. The cost of this course includes materials.
You will be provided with:
15cm of 2mm round wire to create your clasp
1.5 metres of 1.2mm silver round wire for your bracelet links
If you wish to purchase additional silver to create alternative link thicknesses (should time allow), we stock silver which you are able to purchase on the day but please run your ideas through with us first by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What to bring:
For safety reasons, during each class, you are required to wear appropriate footwear, we request that no open toed shoes are worn within Workshop 925. Long hair should also be tied back when working with the equipment. You may also wish to bring a notebook. We have handouts for many demonstrations, but there are always many tips and tricks given verbally by the tutor, which some might like to keep note of. Please bring any PPE, snacks and drinks to each session.
We have a microwave, kettle and fridge to store or cook your lunch choices.
