Spring Jewellery Making Workshops & Courses!

Hello!

I have some jewellery making workshops and courses coming up at Falmouth Adult Education Centre, based on Tregenver Road!  The cost includes tuition, project sheets and materials.  Please bring your own lunch, but I will be bringing along tea, coffee etc!

Jewel Enamels for Jewellery Workshop

Saturday 21 April 2018 10am – 3.30pm – Cost of £35 Course Code:  F709153

Jewel Enamels are special ultra-thick embossing powders which are mainly used in the card-making industry – but they are excellent for making jewellery too! We’ll discover how to melt the jewel enamels and pour into moulds, use stamps to imprint a design and layer different colours onto MDF pendants!

This fun Mixed Media Jewellery course will show you some different ways to create your own jewellery!
