Book now. On this course we will introduce you to one of the oldest jewellery making techniques – hand engraving.
It requires the use of a graver to cut grooves into metal in order to create a beautiful design. We will learn how to prepare, sharpen and use a graver in order to create different decorative textures such as cross hatching, dotting and frosting.

We had an invasion of robot – spacemen whose inspiration came perhaps through cloudy skies on shooting stars.
Thankfully our own earth based ghoulies in the form of skulls, skeletons, spiders and night birds were at the ready to defend us!

I’m endlessly surprised by how much is achieved by the participants – complete beginners, young and old – in such a short time, and by the range and quality of creativity that unfolds in those 3 hours…..Elsewhere, hammers and punches were used to make interesting textures, and beautiful patterns were pressed using the rolling mill. A particular favourite for me was Laura’s landscape.. she worked out a superb solution for a plinth.
