Makers Workshops: The Materials Series
Oak and Silver Ring-making with Sarah Drew
Sunday 13th February 2022
10:00am - 1:00pm
Hall for Cornwall
£35 (includes a hot beverage)
Join artist and jeweller Sarah Drew at this morning ring making workshop. Exploring natural materials, you will have the opportunity to create your own ring using eco-silver and riveted oak. Make a piece of jewellery you can wear everyday that connects you directly to the structure of our historic building.
The offcuts of oak used in this workshop is the same wood used in the theatre’s auditorium. This fits seamlessly with Sarah’s ethos of using recycled and sustainable materials.
The workshop will use soldering, filing, and finishing techniques to make the eco-silver (recycled silver) base; then use riveting cold connections techniques to attach your chosen oak piece and embellish it.
