Etched Jewellery Workshop

$60.00 $120.00


Etching metal is another of Dani’s favourite techniques and such a fun workshop!
We will take plain copper and brass and etch patterns and drawings into the metal to create unique jewellery components.

You can create whatever you like on the day – earrings, charms, pendants – the choice is yours.

We will cover several techniques including the following:

  • Etching Brass and Copper;
  • Cutting Metal;
  • Shaping Metal;
  • Templates;
  • Colouring Metal;
  • Sealing Metal;
  • Plus more……

Please note, that we will not be creating the polymer clay accents as shown in the photos – these are just examples of what you could create with your etched components.

This is very much a student driven workshop. Each student will  be able to create what they wish on the day.
