Creative Connections Workshop

From hinges to hidden articulated joints, this course is for students who want to make contemporary distinctive jewellery.

You will learn various techniques that will allow you to incorporate advanced forms of connections into your work. We will cover working with hinges and rivet, along with using wire, tube and drill holes to create articulated joints that are invisible to the viewer.

This is a technical course which uses demonstrations and practical exercises to help you to develop your skills and a great way of increasing your making repertoire. It is a challenging and rewarding course and will give you the knowledge to design and make distinctive individual jewellery.

Silver will be available to purchase on the day or feel free to bring your own.
