In this full-day workshop, you will learn how to make a stunning sterling silver ring set with a beautiful piece of sea glass.
Running from 10.30 am - 5.30 pm with a short break for lunch, feel free to pop to one of the lovely cafes on Wellfield road, bring a picnic to enjoy in Waterloo Gardens, or stay in the gallery.
You can bring along your own sea glass and I will check and let you know if it's suitable to use (not all sea glass is made equal) or choose a piece specially selected from the River Taff.
If you would like to double-check you would be able to use your own sea glass before booking just pop me an email with a picture of the piece alongside a coin for size reference.
If you have a Weekend Workshop Gift Voucher you can use the credit toward this extended workshop and just pay the difference at checkout.
Learning in a group of up to 6 like-minded people, you will have a lovely creative time with other Cardiff locals.
This workshop is a perfect introduction for anyone keen to try jewellery making using traditional silversmithing methods. Amongst other techniques, you will learn how to:
- Thread and use a piercing saw to cut metal
- Use a jewellers bench peg
- Solder a ring
- Use a jewellers triblet
- Make a freeform cabochon setting
