Ōtaki: Sunday Mornings - 4 weeks block

Foundational jewellery skills in a fun environment!

  • Starts Jul 14
  • From 238.50 New Zealand dollars
  • Workspace Ōtaki Beach

Service Description

This Sunday morning jewellery block is a short class in silver-smithing. Beginners will practice the basic techniques in copper or brass, and then move on quickly to working in silver. If you are a regular in this block class, you can work with Vaune to expand your skills according to your interests. There is no set topic, other than jewellery and silversmithing! An excellent first project for beginners in this class is to create a simple textured ring band - but once you have the basics down, it is fun to create earrings, pendants or other simple items. Learning to cut, heat, form and texture metal - to solder using a jeweller's torch and silver solder, and finally to polish your work up to a beautiful finish: these classes are super satisfying. These blocks are also a nice way for existing students or more advanced makers to join into a class in our well equipped warm and bright studio! Basic materials are supplied and there are extra materials available to purchase as you need in class. Our booking system asks for full payment to be made via credit card, Afterpay or PayPal on booking. If you do not have access to these payment methods or need to pay your course fee over time please email us to arrange this ;)
