About the workshop
Evening Course - January 11th,18th,25th & February 14th - 7 -9pm
A playful class making jewellery in wood with silver findings. We will use sustainably-aware indigenous woods, offcuts from musical instrument making and found items to transform with a variety of decorative techniques to make completed pieces of jewellery. You will use a range of surface techniques such silver inlay dots, painting and ebonising and then learn how to construct finished jewellery using cold connections such as laminating, riveting and pegging . We will look at some the amazingly varied work that International studio jewellers make from wood and information on sourcing materials will also be available. No previous experience necessary.
