Ce que vous allez faire
I will welcome you in my home based studio at the beach side suburb North New Brighton. This is a very exclusive, hands on experience. Only 2 people at the most in this class so you’ll have lots of one to one teaching. While I show you around the studio I will point out any health and safety tips to help create a safe environment for all. Silversmithing covers so many posibilities! You can choose to: *Recycle old broken pieces of jewellery and turn them into new wearable keepsakes *Forging a Spoon *Create jewellery using letters to stamp personalised messages *Or I can tailor the workshop to any other ideas you may have like making a ring, a pendant, a bracelet or earrings. If you have brought any broken or old jewellery with you I will assess whether it is Silver or Gold and will suit your project. If you did not bring any silver items with you I will give you 5 grams of Silver to work with. Once it is clear what you would like to create we will start the fun part: fire and flames and forging (hammering) the metal. Some of the processes are cleaning the work by hand like filing, sanding and polishing. The final end result is totally up to what ever look you like. Please contact me for any other times and or days available im happy to change to suit your itinerary.
I am an experienced Silversmith with more than 10 years of experience, i’m also successfully selling my jewellery at various galleries throughout NZ and I am tutoring at a local college. I love combining our precious Jade with Sterling Silver and have developed quite a unique method of creating one-off contemporary jewellery pieces. I enjoy working towards exhibitions, supplying artwork to galleries and teaching, these all seem to be the right balance for me. I gained my teaching degree 22 years ago and have taught in The Netherlands and New Zealand for many different Colleges and other educational organisations ever since. It is such a thrill to help people create a special piece from scratch and see ideas coming to life.
