With exposed pipework and metal finishes popping up all over Pinterest, this workshop is a great way to try out the industrial trend. Learn basic metalwork techniques, including how to cut copper pipes, attach them together and finish them to create your own candelabra design. You'll be surprised what you can do with the right tools and don't worry, there are no hacksaws, just great fun designing and experimenting with shapes - anyone can do it!
During the session, you'll learn from Etsy based jewellery and homewares designer Melodie Telliez. She will teach you the skills you need to know and advise you on your design. Whether you follow her examples or create your own ideas, you'll leave with a host of new metalworking skills that won't require investing in a metal shop of your own. All materials will be provided.
Suitable for age 16+
Join fantastic designer and Etsy team leader Melodie Telliez for a creative afternoon making leather jewellery to reflect your own style.
Melodie specialises in working with leather off cuts, and will show you her top tips for creating unique and contemporary jewellery with leather. You can use her templates or create your own designs, but you'll leave with a wearable necklace and pair of earrings. It's up to you if you want to be matchy-matchy or make three totally different pieces. The earring hoops are silver for sensitive ears, and we'll also have clip-on earrings and brooch options for those who don't do big earrings.
Don't worry if you're new to jewellery design, at this workshop we'll show you how to work with leather, including cutting, painting and punching and how to combine that with a dash of inspiration and jewellery making skills.
All materials supplied. We will supply pleather as a veggie and vegan option.
