Description

Get the warmth of gold into your life this June! – Do you want to learn to make jewellery or are you keen to improve your soldering skills and learn new techniques? Our 3 day Winter Warmer Workshop is a concentrated and inspiring learning environment with our most experienced and fabulous tutor Diane Appleby. You will love learning new skills and mastering the torch in our beautiful warehouse workshop.

Students attending the Winter Warmer Intensive will learn the ancient Korean process of Keum-boo, “attached gold”, while designing and constructing a unique silver ring or other item of jewellery. Keum-boo is a gilding technique which permanently adheres thin sheets of 24 carat gold to silver by a process using heat and pressure.

3D form and shape and the application of gold will be considered and incorporated into your design. The order of construction and how to set up work for multiple solder joins will be a focus of this workshop. Students will also learn and practice sweat soldering, butt joins and T joins while working on their major project.

SquarePeg Studios will be the hot place to be this June long weekend so fire up your jewellery making skills, improve your soldering techniques and learn lots of useful tips and tricks as you develop control and confidence under the expert tuition of Diane Appleby.

MEET YOUR TUTOR

Diane Appleby completed her Master of Art in Gold and Silversmithing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2003. She has taught in the Jewellery and Object Design Department, Sydney Institute of Technology, Design Centre Enmore, and at the College of Fine Art, University of NSW. Diane’s catalogue of work encompasses collections for exhibition and collaborations with clients on individual pieces. “My jewellery is designed to not only catch the eye, but to also feel delightful to wear. I like to play with colour, form and texture. I choose materials for their unique character, such as stones for their luminosity, metals to encapsulate strength, and silks for their sheen and rippling texture. I enjoy creating pieces with a precious presence. “At the heart of every design is an inspiration, whether I am creating a collection for an exhibition or working with a client to create a uniquely personal piece. I find the satisfaction of bringing a concept to life from a few simple sketches to a finished form extremely exciting.”

Thank you to Diane for such an informative three days. Learning the Keum-boo technique, marrying metals and lots of soldering tips were invaluable. Even if you were familiar with some aspects there were still new ways to try. Every day was busy and we were able to create rings and pendants with a difference.
