MAKE-DAY: Textured Stack Bracelets
You will be guided through the process of making a set of two or three silver stack bracelets with different textures and finishes which are unique to you and made by you! And with between 8 and 10 fellow makers, it will also be a wonderful social experience with some mingling and a glass of bubbles at the end.
Price is per person.
What will I make?
You will make two or three silver stack bracelets using a variety of different techniques to form and texture your bracelets which you can mix and match and stack together.
What will happen on the day?
You will be greeted by your instructor who will supply you with everything you need including pad, pencil, apron, silver and all tools.
You will be shown examples of bracelets whilst you meet your fellow makers. We will measure the size your bracelets need to be and work out the length of silver. You will then get started bending, forming, soldering, applying some hammered texturing techniques before finishing your bracelets off with a polish and / or satin finish.
You can also have your bracelets Yellow or Rose gold plated. This can't be done on the premises so they will be taken to the platers for you and then you can collect them a few weeks later or whenever is convenient, or we can post them to you. The cost for plating is an additional £40 for each bracelet.
We will end with a little glass of Prosecco or, non-alcoholic beverage if preferred to celebrate your creative achievements!
What skills do I need?
Difficulty classification: MEDIUM
No previous experience needed, just a steady hand, a little patience and willingness to give it a go! Don't worry if you feel you're not artistic or creative, you will be taken through the whole process step by step.
What should I bring?

- Money or card payment for optional gold plating and posting bracelets to you (if collecting isn't possible)
