Description

Welcome to the Granulated Earring Class!

This is hands-on, fun filled class for the metal jewellery enthusiast!
We’ll be learning the ancient art of granulation- working it into modern earrings, in your choice of design so there is plenty to keep us occupied!
Design, soldering, filing and finishing and of course- granulation are all on the to do list today, so come along to Gilded Poppy Makery for a day full of laughs, great company, new friends and leave with beautiful new earrings to show friends and family.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there,

Cheers

What you will learn

  • Hi there! This is a hands-on class where we'll be diving into forming and granulation- such a delicious combo! Everything will be made by you from scratch, and at the end of the day you'll be able to look at your gorgeous earrings, and know that YOU made that!

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10am to 5:30pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have morning tea ready for you when you get here. Coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.

What to bring

  • Just yourself! A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.

What to wear

We are working with fire and really hot metal, so there are a few things that we have to do before we start. 1) Long hair must be tied back, with no stragglers. Headbands are great to keep it from falling forward of your face. 2) Clothes should be of natural materials: Cotton, bamboo, hemp, wool etc. Polyester and Nylon are made from plastic- and plastic melts if something hot lands on it! Sleeves need to be rolled back out of the way, and an apron tied over your clothes to stop anything loose from falling forward. T-shirt and jeans are a great choice, with a flannel shirt if it’s a bit chilly. (I will have an apron here to cover your clothes, so you don’t have to bring your own.) 3) Just like our bodies, our feet need protecting too. Tools are sharp, things are hot, and everything falls downwards if we fumble, so closed toe shoes are a must. Boots, sneakers- anything without gaps will do. 4) Personal jewellery should have as little ‘dangle’ as possible. Charm bracelets and chunky rings are gorgeous but get in the way when you're using your hands, so are better left at home, or in your bag for the duration of the class.

Appropriate for

This is a confident beginner to intermediate class, available to those from years 16 and up.

Welcome to the home of Gilded Poppy Makery, a fun, relaxing place to learn the art of Silversmithing.
Here you will meet new friends as you take raw materials and turn them into beautiful pieces of jewellery that will thoroughly impress your friends and family.

Small, intimate classes of no more than five people ensure plenty of one-on-one time with Storm as you put your new skills to the test creating a wide range of projects including rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets and pendants.

The various classes will cover techniques such as Soldering, Pierce-work, Filing and Finishing, Stone Setting, Fold-forming, Etching, Enamelling, Metal Clay, Kumihimo Cord Making, Viking knit, Wire Wrapping, Bone Carving and so much more. It's fair to say that there is something for everyone, and you won't be bored any time soon!

Book into your class today and bring a friend or two. With a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 people, these classes are perfect way to escape from the daily rat-race for yourself, or as a crafty get-together with friends.

Gilded Poppy Makery is a warm, inclusive place where learning is fun and mistakes are celebrated as 'Design Features' (we have a sticker with that very thing on it!). Bring your curiosity and a sense of humour and join us at the workbench.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all,

Cheers,

Storm

This is such a fun class! Storm is a lovely teacher and pure joy to learn from. My earrings are super cute and I am officially addicted to hand forging silver. I cannot wait to come back and learn more!

This course gives you the opportunity to produce earrings you can say you've made yourself, using proper techniques for every element. The small group sessions Storm runs allows everyone to have her attention when required, plus allows participants to watch eachother while they perform tasks (like soldering) adding to the learning experience. On completion of this course I'd produced a beautiful pair of earrings that I'd made myself and have since received many compliments about. Although all the participants in this course used the same materials, tools and techniques, we all produced very different earrings. This course was a great opportunity to combine the structure of learning and applying real silversmithing techniques with our own tastes and personalities to produce unique and personal pieces. Highly recommended.
