Embossed Earrings & Pendant Workshop
Location: The Sorting Office
A shorter workshop, timed perfectly to fit between the school run.
By the end of this workshop you will have made two beautiful pairs of earrings, two lovely pendants or one of each – the choice is yours!
We will be using the rolling mill to emboss simple shapes of silver with beautiful patterns, allowing you to learn the basics of using this fantastic piece of equipment.
This workshop is suitable for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. In particular, the workshop will teach delicate soldering skills to attach the stud fittings and earwires to your designs.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need. Under 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.
10am-2.30pm Friday 11th October 2019 at The Sorting Office Studios, 37 Wells Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.
Workshop fee £50.
Cost of the materials is payable on the day. The cost will depend on the amount of silver that you use but these do not tend to use much silver. Previous students have spent approximately £10-£12 on silver plus £3 if you also need a chain for your pendant.
