Description

Make three pairs of earrings with different textured surfaces including roller printing and hammering. Roller-printing involves pressing a textured material, be it silk, lace, sand paper or fly-wire into a metal's surface. This is done by rolling the metal and material through a rolling mill. Even the tiniest and most delicate detail can create impressive results. Hammering silver will result in different textures depending on the hammers used. Oxidisation can also be used to create a beautiful contrast with sterling silver that has been hammered and roller-printed.  

Make your earrings with your own design.  

No previous jewellery making skills are required, so no preparation is necessary!

Silver and earring hooks are included in the class cost.

The class size is  8 students for max. social distancing -  COVID-19 requirements.

What a great workshop! Fantastic teachers and a great start to get a taster of what’s involved in jewellery making. During my 3.5 hr class I made two practice sets of earrings in copper to get my confidence up then went on to make three silver pairs. It was really good fun and informative and I’m going back to make stacker rings next week.
