Create your own piece of handcrafted silver jewellery set with seaglass.
A fun and inspiring workshop to create your own seaglass ring, necklace or bangle. You can use your own seaglass finds or choose from the Porth Jewellery collections. By the end of the session you will leave with your own piece of silver jewellery.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
You will be taught how to: make a necklace, ring or bangle to size; cut and file silver; solder settings; construct bezel settings; add texture to silver; set seaglass in a bezel setting.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
The cost of the workshop covers all materials required* as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. Lunch is not provided.
Don’t forget your reading glasses if you need them as there is a lot of close up work!
(*Bangle – £15 supplement for extra silver cost, payable on the day. Please note in the comments when booking if you would like to make a bangle so Laura can bring the right materials.)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Due to the nature of the tools and materials used in the class you are required to wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Hair must be tied back and please do not wear loose clothing or scarves; you may not want to get your nails done before the session!
Strictly no alcohol to be consumed before or during the workshop.
