A chance to create a unique jewellery piece inspired by nature.

Participants will begin their day walking around the local area to forage for natural inspiration to work and design with. Back in the workshop, you will learn how to make silicon moulds of your finds and cast them using silver clay to make truly beautiful, intricate pendants or earrings.

In this workshop you will be able to make either:
A large pair of earrings with sterling silver ear wires.
A pendant with a 16'' fine sterling silver chain.
Two small pairs of earrings with sterling silver ear wires.

Suitable for beginners or those with some experience.

Please bring a packed lunch or you can buy takeaway from The Green Welly café in the village.
