Full Day Workshops….
I regularly run jewellery making workshops so you can learn how to make your own jewellery in so many different ways.
My main workshops are currently held at Heslam Park Rugby Club in Scunthorpe. I have one day every month, usually held on a Saturday or Sunday. Please see the calendar for future dates.
These courses do not have a specific course content and anyone can start a class at any time and come to as many or as few as you want. You can be a complete beginner, or a more advanced jewellery maker just looking for new inspiration. At every class I have a new project to show my students, but you can work on your own designs or any other previous design, it is completely up to you.
If you are a beginner, I can provide all the tools and equipment you will need, the only thing extra you will need are the beads! I do have some bead kits available, as well as some other bits you might like to buy, and instruction sheets you will need.
Of course one of the good things about learning to make your own jewellery, is that you can recycle any old jewellery! Bring along old necklaces and things that you no longer wear or are broken and make them into something new!
These workshops cost £16 for the full day from 10.30am – 4pm. You will need a pack up for lunch, unless you would like to pop to the pub across the road!! There is free tea, coffee and hot chocolate throughout the day, as well as plenty of free parking for the day.
To book in any of the courses, please contact me if you are interested in attending. There is a £6 NON REFUNDABLE deposit to be paid in advance of the class to book your place, and then the remaining £10 needs to be paid on the day of the class.
Make and Take Workshops / Demonstrations
I can attend local craft groups or meeting groups to do a short talk and demonstration on what I do as well as bring kits of some of my simple projects for people to be able to have a go themselves at making something such as a pair of earrings or a simple bracelet to take home with them. Sessions like this start at £30 within Scunthorpe for a 2 hour session. I usually bring my ready made jewellery for people to see and to buy things if they want. My make and take kits are usually between £1.50 and £3 per kit, so people can do whatever they want, and however many they can fit in the time! I bring all the equipment needed for people to try these.
Tailor Made Workshops
I can put together a day workshop for a specific group of people if you have a group that would like to have a full day session on my designs. Again, I can bring all the equipment that would be needed for a full class to use during the day, and bring items that people could purchase to use throughout the day as well as my instruction leaflets to show you how to complete the designs. There would be a cost for the tuition for the day which would depend on where the class would be and for how many etc. It would then be up to the students to purchase what they needed to use throughout the day. Please contact me with your requirements if you are interested in this.
