The art of Filigree is one of the most fascinating jewellery-making techniques still in use today. It involves twisting fine metal threads into intricate works and creating works of art. It is time-consuming and takes years to learn the skill, but these workshops will be an introduction to the craft. The workshops are entitled "Create Your Own Filigree Pendant" and are one-hour hands-on sessions with up to 4 people. Together, they get to make a small filigree pendant. The aim is to see the whole process, take part in it and to go home with the finished product. Each workshop will teach the basics of the filigree craft and will consists of a 10-minute introduction and briefing tutorial, followed by a 50-minute hands-on activity, where guests will create their own pendants. Each workshop session is fun and exciting, especially as guests will see the process which will take them from a simple piece of silver wire to owning the finished product. All materials needed for making filigree jewellery are provided during the workshop and guests will even get to take the pendants which they create with them! Each guest will have the opportunity to discover the art of filigree making and who knows?...… maybe they will like it so much that they will sign on for one of the more intense classes which we hold from time to time!
