JAN 2022 Make Your Own - Keum Boo Earrings - Taster Session

Have you always fancied learning a new skill, or stuck for gift ideas? How about creating your very own precious metal piece of jewellery?

Time & Location

22 Jan 2022, 11:00 – 13:30
The Workshop, Paisley, The Workshop, 23 Gordon St, Paisley PA1 1XD, UK


In this introductory, 2½ hr taster workshop, suitable for beginners, learn the ancient metal-smithing gilding technique of 'keum boo' (attached gold) with me, Lisa, at Paisley's own jewellery workshop on Gordon Street. 

Here, you'll be provided with all the materials & tools necessary to make your very own unique piece of jewellery. Not only will you be taught how to permanently bond 24ct gold to silver, using heat & pressure, you will also be able to leave with your very own finished & ready to wear, handmade, dangle drop earrings, designed and made by you! 


  • What will I learn? 

You'll have the opportunity to use lots of tools & techniques in the workshop to create your jewellery, these include: 

*Sawing, piercing, filing, punching & doming your silver sheet. 

*Texturing, using hammers, punches, hand tools or the rolling machine

*Bonding 24ct gold to your fine silver, using heat & burnishing

*Drilling & Polishing to finish your designs

*Cold connections only (no soldering involved)

*Oxidising to darken your designs

  • Who's this session for? 

Anyone interested! You can be a complete beginner who's never been in a workshop before, you'll be guided through how to use the necessary tools to create simple, shaped & textured drop earrings.  This is just a short taster session, so complicated pieces won't be possible to make in that time & there is no soldering involved. 

  • What do I bring? 

You'll need a mask, glasses if you need them for close up work, & something to keep long hair back. Feel free to bring your own apron to protect your clothes, we do also provide them. Do remember you'll be in a workshop environment, so there are heavy tools, torches & acids - best not to wear your open toe sandals, floaty clothes or favourite jeans! 

***Please note, these sessions will take place upstairs on the first floor, we only have stairs access.***

This workshop session is limited to 6 people.
