Under the guide of Silversmith Jemica Ostrofski, learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals. The basic metalsmithing techniques of mark making will be explored using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps and other tools. You will have the opportunity to add your own creative touches to your designs along the way, while learning key techniques and skills.
The workshop will run for 3 hours in which you will have the option of making up to two cuff/bracelets pieces.
