Beach finds jewellery making workshop
29 April, 2017at 11:00 am - 5:00 pm£60
Spend a relaxing, creative and eco-friendly day making cool and contemporary jewellery out of found materials from the beach.
Professional jewellery-maker Sarah Drew will take you beach combing for sea glass, sea string, driftwood, pebbles and shells to make into quirky modern jewellery.
Use your finds to practice useful jewellery-making techniques such as wire-work, using tiger tail, crocheting with wire and sea-string, threading and other textile techniques to incorporate the morning’s recycled booty into lovely, wearable statement pieces — necklaces, chokers, cuffs and bling rings.
This laid-back workshop is perfect for beginners with some challenges thrown in for more experienced makers too. The techniques are easy to learn and useful, while the materials used are easily available and affordable so you can continue making at home.
Level: The course is suitable for adults and no experience is required.

Times: 10am – 4pm
Run by: Sarah Drew
