Create jewellery and small objects using wireworking techniques. Ideal for beginners or those with some jewellery experience wishing to learn a new skill. Come and join us to learn in this supportive and friendly environment.
This course is designed for learners with no previous knowledge of making jewellery with metal clay. Beginning jewellery makers are welcome as are those with experience with silver clay or other forms of jewellery making. Most important is a desire to learn and make pieces from these materials. There are a number of different metal clays available. On this course we will experiment with copper clay to make jewellery. Metal clays are substantially cheaper than silver clay meaning that you can afford to be more experimental!
Resin jewellery making is a fun and inexpensive way to be creative. You will learn techniques to add colour and mould your resin into unique shapes that can be made up into basic jewellery pieces.
