Intro to Etching
Hi there, and welcome to Intro to Etching!
This is a fun hands-on class that will start you out on the path to creating amazing textures for all your work.
We'll be diving into how to create the patterns, the resist we need, what metals to use and a bit of Mad Scientist thrown in for good measure.
At the end of the class we'll have a beautifully textured pair of earrings to take home, with enough etched metal left over for another project or two!
Come and join me at Gilded Poppy Makery for a day of laughs, metal and fun!
What you will learn
- This is a relaxed, fun class where once you have the basic technique down, there's plenty of time to chat, make friends and have a good laugh as we work our way through the project. Perfect way to unwind, while doing something creative!
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
This is a no-fire day at the Makery, so anything you’d be comfy in for the day is fine. A suggestion though would be to avoid trailing sleeves that can get caught up in the work, and to keep rings and bracelets to snag-free pieces.
This is an open beginner 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,
