Acid etching is a fantastic way to add visual interest to your jewellery. This workshop will look at the many different ways to introduce imagery and textures to sheet metal surfaces using the technique.
There are many different ways to create images using the acid etching technique. This day will provide an over-view and a taster of several of these different creative processes. We will look at very accessible ways to introduce imagery. Mainly using equipment and materials which you may already have around the home. This will give you a basic knowledge to use the technique after the day. you will be able to decide which of the techniques you like the best. Or, which suits your jewellery style the best.
The workshop will be an opportunity to try this interesting technique and to experience the versatility of this medium for jewellery making. Advice will also be given on how to use the technique safely in your own studio environment or at home.
All tools and equipment are included. We will have afternoon tea & cakes. Materials are extra and payable on the day. Silver, brass or copper can be used.
At Lunch time;
We are adjacent to the Chesterfield Canal where lunch may be purchased from the cafe or a pack up may be eaten at the picnic site. There is also a Morrisons supermarket close by with a cafe, cash point, etc. The studio is closed and locked over the lunch break and it is fine to leave any belongings if you wish.
This workshop is open to beginners. This is a subject which can be used to complement other applications – such as beading. Individuals used to using metals & tools may find the subject easier on the day. However, this is not essential. Feel free to contact us to discuss your ability before booking if you are not sure.
