From Missoni to Marni, fashion houses have been featuring more affordable materials in their jewellery ranges such as wood and Perspex, which makes it the perfect time to launch some new classes to help you achieve striking effects in materials that won’t break the bank.
Two options for a new Mixed Media Jewellery class are already available for booking. In either a two-day workshop or a five-week evening class, you will learn techniques to combine Perspex, wood and metals to create striking geometric pieces and dramatic statement jewellery.
The techniques in the class include:
- Transferring designs
- Sawing wood and Perspex
- Piercing base metal
- Filing, sanding and polishing
- Cold Connections and gluing
- Heat forming Perspex
- Polishing and preservative treatments for wood
We’ll also be adding a taster class for Perspex techniques and an evening class featuring intermediate polymer techniques.
These will be added to the website in the next few days but to wet your appetite we have a few images to share.
