Bangle Making Workshop

About the Course

Bangle Making Class
In this workshop you will create 2 bangles, 1 in silver and 1 in copper. The copper bangle will be your test piece in which you can experiment with your design and get comfortable with the tools before you spend time creating your silver bangle to your own design. If you like you can make them as a matching pair to wear together! You will be guided on how to test different hammer heads and explore how you can create different marks with them before deciding on how you would like your silver bangle to look.

You will learn traditional techniques throughout the course as follows:
• Accurate measuring, calculating, and cutting to a correct size.
• Annealing.
• Soldering.
• Texturing.
• Shaping and forming.
• Finishing

The workshop is equally suitable for students who have not done a workshop with Bigbury Mint before or who already have some basic jewellery making skills.
This class is on Saturday 11th May,  9am-1pm. £87 per person.

Your workshop will be run by our Silversmith Vicky –
Your tutor, Vicky, has been designing and making jewellery since 2012 when she studied at Penwith School of Art in Cornwall. The first tap of a hammer ignited a passion for jewellery making which has seen her complete a degree and set up her own small business. Over the past few years, she has enjoyed teaching the art of jewellery making at Bigbury Mint.
