All Silver Sunday workshops take place in my jewellery studio in Roath.
In this 2-3 hour workshop, you will be shown how to cut, shape, texture and finish your own pendant design from silver. This is a perfect introduction for anyone who has longed to make a piece of jewellery or is thinking of taking up jewellery making. Saw piercing is the key skill to making almost any piece of jewellery.
You will learn how to:
- Thread and use a piercing saw
- Use a bench peg
- Make holes in metal
- Use simple techniques for texturing metal
- Polish your design ready to wear
- Use jump rings to attach your pendant to your chain
At the end of the session, you will have a completely unique silver necklace made by you!
Learning in a small group of up to 4 like-minded people, you will have a lovely creative time with other Cardiff locals.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Nothing, I will provide you with all materials and tools. There are loads of ideas for necklaces you can make with the class handouts but if you have an idea of the shape you would like to cut that is excellent.
Can't do these dates?
Want to do this workshop but can't find a date to fit your schedule? Pop me an email as I'm regularly putting new dates up and can be very flexible. Alternatively. all my workshops are available to book for just you and your friends - check out the Private workshop page for more info.
There's lots of free street parking near the studio, if you're planning to drive just let me know and I'll email you a little map I've made.
I have put a variety of measures in place to keep us covid secure. There will be hand sanitiser available throughout the workshop and tables will be wiped before we start.
You will each have a set of tools so you don't need to share and won't need to move about the room.
If you do become unwell or need to self-isolate before a workshop do not worry at all, I will simply transfer you to another date so you don't miss out.
If you want to check the space out before attending or if there is anything else I can do to help you feel safe and happy just let me know!
