Rivets, Screws & Cold Joins Workshop

Give your jewellery a more professional finish by learning techniques to make your designs unique with cold joins.

We will cover joining metal without the use of solder and the types of designs this is useful for. We'll teach you how to use these techniques to enhance your designs and how these techniques allow you to introduce different materials into your work like plastics, fabric or wood.

This course is technical and will use demonstration and practical exercises to allow you to develop your skills. By learning these new skills you will expand your repertoire of hand fabrication which is essential for creating an individual style and approach to jewellery design.

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