Workshop description

A creative workshop to learn the basics of jewellery making. Various projects might include working on earring designs, necklaces or bracelets. We will also think about how we might market what we make in order to raise funds for Make, Do and Mend.

Workshop aims

By the end of the workshop members will:

 

  • have chosen a project and design to work on.
  • will be shown the basics of jewellery making techniques, including how to use the tools.
  • have an opportunity to think about different designs and to create different effects.
  • be asked to think about how Make, Do and Mend can market and sell its jewellery designs to fund further workshops.
  • develop real business skills including product development, marketing, selling and customer service.

Other information

Please bring along any spare or old beads, so that we may give them a new lease of life.
