Date: Sun 24 Jan
Time: 1.30 - 4.30
Venue: Sophie Perez Art Studio - Mornington.
The class is a maximum of 4 people which allows for a lot of time with instructor and sharing with other participants. It is a fun and intimate environment.
Making jewellery is an exploratory art, often the metals can change shape during the process, and you can go in a new direction. With skilled assistance you will have fun creating your very own unique jewellery with tools including blowtorches, dremels, hammers and the anvil.
All tools will be explained, and no experience is necessary.
We will cover settings using gallery wire, pre made bezels, prong setting for unusual stones and creating bezels - and which technique to use with different stones / treasures.
If you have a design or idea please contact me before the workshop to make sure we have time to bring this to life.
You will learn hands on how to use different tools, and techniques to create your piece.
Sarah has a laid back teaching style, when she first handled tools she was nervous and a little bit concerned about burning holes in the carpet, or not being strong enough. With most tools a light touch is enough to create your work.
