Necklace making class £20.00

On Tuesday 7th June, during Dorset Art Weeks we are offering necklace making classes. A fun activity for all ages. Create a simple drawing, we will cut it out for you. You can choose a  colourful plastic or from a range of British woods to be creative with. We will fire up our  super amazing laser cutting machine to do the cutting out of your drawing super quickly and accurately !! To finish your necklace choose a coloured cord to add to your drawn element to create your own necklace and artwork. We will expertly apply the cord to the cut element for you.

No drawing experience or jewellery making experience necessary. Will take between half an hour and an hour depending on how busy we get.

Open from 9am-6pm on the 7th June. Last laser cutting at 5.30

Dorset Arts Week , 28th May to 12th June 2016

I'm thrilled to announce that I will be taking part as an exhibitor at Dorset Arts Week , 28th May - 12th June . I will be part of a group show in the beautiful studios of Alice Blogg ( see some of Alices work above ) as a Browns Farm Creative .

See Dorset Arts Week Directory HERE .

I'll be there for most of the time, showing gold and silver collections. I'm busy making lots of new pieces for the exhibition.

Alice and I are planning some special workshops and talks. I'll be demonstrating the ancient art of cuttlefish casting, talking about my work one evening and Alice and I will be winding up the laser cutting machine and will be offering you the chance to design a pendant and have your design laser cut in acrylic or wood . I'll let you know dates soon.
