I've been making jewellery for more than 20 years now and over the last year I started thinking about teaching and passing on some of my skills and knowledge so I was excited when the opportunity arose to work with The Art House, Wakefield delivering jewellery making workshops.
The workshops planned so far are making a Silver Wrap Ring, Silver Drop Earrings and Silver Pendant Necklace. Focusing on forming and texturing metal you will learn how to apply a variety of techniques such as planishing (a method of manipulating metal by hammering), stamping and hand polishing to form your jewellery and create a different finishes.
There are so many different techniques that can be used in jewellery making and an endless array of tools, equipment and gadgets available but I want to show how it is possible to make beautiful jewellery with a simple selection of tools and materials.
These workshops are a great introduction to basic jewellery making techniques and you get to make and take home your very own piece of silver jewellery.
The workshops are £50 per person, head over to The Art House Wakefield website to book your place!
