COIN NECKLACE MAKING WORKSHOP
With me and the cats in the shed. (Max 2 people)
Come and join me in my shed for a coin necklace making workshop and learn how to make your own repurposed coin pendant which you’ll take home with you at the end of the session.
I have three different workshops, of different levels, depending on how much you would like to learn and how much time you’d like to spend with me! I will be adding a calendar soon for you to pick dates, but until then, once you’ve bought the workshop, we can arrange the date and time that suits you. Alternatively, contact me before to discuss the date and time you would like.
At the start of each workshop, over some tea, we will sit together to pick out your spirit animal from a beautiful deck of cards with some light reflection on the wisdom your card offers you. You can then choose to pick a coin with that animal on or alternatively you may pick out any coin from my own collection of animal and nature coins. You are also more than welcome to bring any coin of your own that you would like to turn into a pendant.
Vegan tea, coffee and biscuits will be freely available during the workshop. I cant live without these while I’m making!
There will also be a heateror a fan if and when we need it.
2 – 3 HOUR CLASS (Depending on experience and how many per class – max 2 people)
During this workshop you will make your coin pendant using basic jewellery techniques.
You will learn how to pierce a hole into the coin from which you will later add a loop to, to hang onto a chain. You will learn how to sand the coin if you would like to remove any letters/numbers, using a Dremel drill or a pendant motor drill, and how to apply a hammered texture to it. You will learn how to finish and polish and finally add a sterling silver loop from which to hang it. A sterling silver 16″/ 18″/20″ chain will be provided.
INTERMEDIATE – Bring your own lunch
4 HOUR CLASS (Depending on experience and how many per class – max 2 people)
During this workshop you will make your coin pendant using the same techniques I use to make the coin pendants. I will show you the basics of soldering and you will be able to watch me while I solder your coin pendant.
You will learn how to sand using a pendant drill or a Dremel drill and how to hammer texture onto your coin. After I have done the soldering for you, you will learn how to polish and finish it off, ready to hang onto a chain. A sterling silver 16″/ 18″ / 20″ chain will be provided.
ADVANCED – bring your own lunch.
