Following on from our celebratory Open Studios last weekend where hundreds of visitors came to be inspired and see examples of handmade craft being made by resident tenants, associate makers and participants, we want to now invite you to have a go!
We’ve booked in a ‘creative jewellery weekend’ with two highly talented local makers and we wanted to tell you all about them!
On June 10th we’ll will be running two separate workshops with a focus on unique jewellery design. Our Jewellery classes are probably the most popular workshops we run with 3 on-going sessions running every week. Our regular participants are working at all levels, from complete beginners to advanced and the work they create is utterly inspiring! We had 3 display cases full of their work at our Open Studios and everyone commented on how good it was!
We hope this weekend will appeal to both our regular attendees and new visitors…
Syann Van Niftrik is a well-known jeweller who brings her background and expertise in sculpture to her jewellery design. Syann will be leading a forged metal bangle workshop where participants will get to explore techniques and different finishes before leaving at the end of the workshop with a completed solid silver bangle, which they can treasure forever (of gift to a special someone!)
The second artist we’ve invited to join us for our creative Jewellery weekend is Lindsay Taylor. Lindsay is based on the Isle of Wight and creates the most incredible machine embroidered artworks and pieces. Lindsay’s workshop will offer our regular jewellery participants a completely new and innovative way of looking at components for their own designs, likewise any textile enthusiasts can learn how to transform their creations into a piece of wearable art!!”
Both the sessions take place at Making Space in our two creative teaching spaces. The sessions run from 10am – 3pm on Saturday 10 June. If you want to find out more please check out these pages of our website (where you can also book online)
