We have a unique New Jewellery class starting a week today in the upstairs room at Stoke Albany Village Hall at the same time as Woolly Day which will be in the main hall as usual. Fee for the day is £20 and includes all materials, tuition and clinic. The workshop will be run by Jeweller, Rachell Allen who is also a gifted tutor. Rachell said: "Although the class is for beginners, we will be using a semi-precious tumbled-chip beads and quality silver-plated findings inspired by the Ode to Autumn, 'Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness'.
You will learn how to use different tools, techniques & findings and make your own necklace and earings by the end of the day. There will be an opportunity to purchase the specialist materials and findings you need for your own projects in future, and to encourage this I will hold a Personal Jewellry Clinic to look at your own beloved pieces and discuss how they can be Renewed, Repaired or completely Reinvented! You'll be amazed - promise!"
Places are limited due to the size of the room.
