July Make a Silver Bangle Workshop
Saturday 25th July, 10-4pm, £85
Have you ever fancied trying your hand at jewellery making? Resident Silversmith and Jeweller Zoe Watts will guide you through the process of making your very own bespoke silver bangle in a day. You will enjoy the creative process of experimenting with hammer and punch work and be encouraged to use your creativity with mark-making as you embellish your bangle in a unique and personal fashion. You will work your way through each part of the process, using hand held specialist jewellery tools to saw, solder and finish the bangle to a beautiful standard.
The workshop will be fun, informal and taught at a steady pace. There will be examples of previous participant results so you can see what is achievable. Zoe can also help you with ideas for the design of your bangle.
You will be working with tools and equipment that can be potentially hazardous if due care and attention is not taken; we therefore ask that participants are over the age of 16, wear suitable clothing including shoes or boots that cover and protect the feet. Long hair must be tied back and rings, scarfs and other dangling or loose clothing must be removed prior to the start of the class. You will be working in an upstairs studio for a small part of the workshop, so if you have any disabilities, then please get in touch. Unfortunately this workshop is not suitable for pregnant women.
If you would like to bring an apron or overall please feel free.
All workshop materials are provided and at the end of the day you will go home with your very own hand-crafted silver bangle. This class does not require past experience in jewellery making or metal work.
We can accept other methods of payment, please get in touch if you would like to pay via bank transfer or cheque: bookings@VictoriaWorksStudios.co.uk
