Sunday 13th June 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?
This course allows you to design and make your very own silver cocktail stirrer, something you can treasure forever and feel incredibly proud to show off when you next pour yourself a cocktail.
We will take you through every step, you do not require any experience. You will learn a vast range of new skills to help you bring your design to life… soldering, piercing (cutting the metal) texturing techniques, using shape punches, letter punches, filing and shaping, doming, and polishing. We will guide you with your designs to make sure they can be completed in the time frame, and with demonstrations and the support of your tutor, you will transform your design from an idea to reality. This is a really fun course where you can experiment with many techniques.
If you have some experience, you can dare to take on a more challenging design!
You will design and create your very own cocktail stirrer from start to finish, allowing you to create something completely personal.
Please do not book if you do not agree with our Coronavirus procedures.
