Jewellery making classes
Fancy learning a new craft?
Why not come along and enjoy a morning taster session in the studio learning all about precious metal clay and trying your hand at the craft. During the session (10am-1pm-ish) you'll learn the following:

The different types of PMC
How to roll PMC to a consistent thickness

At the end of the morning you will leave with one finished piece of jewellery and enough PMC to make another piece of jewellery at home.
