there is something so relaxing about the sound of metal chiming against metal, isn't there?
This is a class where you will up to your, well- wrists, in the gorgeous sounds of copper and bronze as you craft your very own spinner bangle. We'll be working from scratch using sheet metal, wire (and lots of hammers!) to create a beautiful bangle that is uniquely yours.
Come along to Gilded Poppy Makery for a day full of laughs, smacking hammers, great company and leave with a beautiful new skill to show friends and family.
I'm looking forward to seeing you there,
What you will learn
- This is the perfect opportunity toget your hands working with forming and shaping metal. So often we make earrings, rings and pendants, but we rarely work on the bigger pieces, and they present their own learning opportunities for us to play with. This is a fabulous class that combines a heap of hammering (we all love smacking things with hammers!) with some rustic Urban Tribal vibe design and a belly full of laughs with new friends.
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 any time, and when we break for lunch, there are several cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Parking is easily available in Dorset Square. If you're coming for a 3 hour class, you can park anywhere the 3 hour limit is sign posted. If you're coming for an all-day class, you can park on the roof level of the Coles Parking Building for free all-day parking.
What to bring
- Just yourself! A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.
What to wear

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 i
