Heritage Skills: Jewellery Making

3rd March 10:00am - 3:00pm

Have fun creating a range of jewellery in this one-day introductory course, and learn the skills for a fascinating new hobby.

During the course you will:

  • make a pendant from enamelled aluminium wire, a light and flexible material. The curling technique that you will use adapts very nicely to many ongoing projects.

  • Learn to use a bead winder. This is a simple two-part tool used to create a variety of different coiling effects. You will create a thick, highly decorative wire work bracelet.

  • create four different ring designs using a ring mandrel,  learning how to resize the rings. Designs include an adjustable spiral ring, button ring and a bead ring as well as a larger spiral ring. All of these are made from wire and are decorative and simple to make.

You will also learn about the properties of the different materials that you are working with, and general wire working techniques. You’ll learn how to use a range of tools, and how the techniques learned can be further developed.

Suitable for beginners.

All tools and equipment are included in the course fee.
