Ever fancied making your own silver jewellery? Well now you can have a go! The Lady Skillers have contacted Manchester School of Jewellery to run a workshop especially for the Manchester WI.
We will learn texturing with hammers, stamping, doming, wire manipulation, soldering and finishing. Everyone will practice first in copper so we can try all the various techniques for ourselves, then we will have a silver soldering demonstration plus a one-to-one practical!
The workshop should take 3 hours, with the aim to finish making a little earlier so that we have the time to harden and shine our piece ready to take home at the end. The workshop costs £35pp and includes all the materials and sterling silver to make a pendant, lapel pin or pair of ear studs!
Go on and treat yourself to new skills & jewellery for 2018!
