Inspiration Jewellery Workshop (14 February)
Inspiration Jewellery Workshop with Jemica Ostrofski: 11–4pm Sunday 14 February.
Work with silversmith Jemica Ostrofski from Meekz Contemporary Jewellery to design and fabricate your own textured jewellery with inspirational (or anti-inspirational!) messages using recycled metals. You will learn basic metalsmithing techniques in this workshop, including hand-sawing and mark-making using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps and other tools, and add your own creative touches to produce an original piece of jewellery.
You will be able to make 3–6 inspiration pins, which could be made as brooches, lapel pins, earrings, rings, necklaces, cuff links, keyrings, or unique sculptural forms... whatever you want to make! Jemica will provide images of designs and inspirational messages that you can make, and you are also welcome to bring along images of jewellery ideas that you might like to make, along with a pen and paper to draw designs and take notes.
All levels of experience are welcome for this workshop. All tools and materials that are needed to produce your work are supplied, including: metal sheets (aluminium, copper or brass), findings to turn your creation into jewellery or a sculpture, industrial strength glue, an apron to wear during workshop, and a gift box or pouch to store your finished creation.
For safety reasons, please wear enclosed shoes and clothes that are not too loose to avoid them getting caught in equipment. Long hair should similarly be tied back. This workshop is suitable adults and teenagers over 16 years of age.
