JAN 2022 Make Your Own - Keum Boo Earrings - Taster Session
Time & Location
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.
