Date: 22 May
Time: 1pm - 4pm
Venue: Geelong, Eastern Hub.
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, soldering experience is necessary. This is an advanced class, and it is a requirement that you have completed one of my ring / jewellery making classes to be able to participate in the class.
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.
What else you should know
The session runs for three hours. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
We will cover prong settings, gallery wire settings, wire wrapping, and I will demonstrate rub over settings.
