London Jewellery School is busy preparing to run the jewellery workshops at September’s giant craft event, The Handmade Fair presented by Kirstie Allsopp. The fair takes place on 19-21 September at Hampton Court.
As well as the workshops there will be opportunities to meet Jessica Rose, London Jewellery School founder. Jess will be popping into the jewellery tent to help teach some of our workshops as well as signing her book Bead and Wire Fashion Jewelry and demonstrating projects from the book on the GMC Publications stand in the East Tent each afternoon.
In the jewellery skills tent LJS will be running workshops on creating wire cocktail rings, chandelier earrings and memory wire bracelets. We have a great selection of tutors taking part including Gail Florio, Mary Ann Nelson, Penny Akester, Hayley Kruger and Anna Campbell.
Joining us for some jewellery making fun is only part of the fun. Tickets include access to a grand make session – such as origami floristry and excitingly pompom making to beat the world record for the longest line of pompoms – and the talks in the Super Theatre which include an expert from the V&A, designers such as Cath Kidson, and sessions on using Pinterest and Etsy (follow the links to find out more).
We’re looking forward to sharing the love of jewellery making with 100s of new people and meeting lots of handmade fans – hopefully we’ll see you there.
