Description

Under the guide of Silversmith Jemica Ostrofski, learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals. The basic metalsmithing techniques of mark making will be explored using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps and other tools. You will then have the opportunity to create your own unique design should you feel comfortable. The workshop will run for 2 hours in which you will have the option of making – a ring, pendent, earrings, cuff links, or brooch.

About Jemica Ostrofski

Meekz Contemporary Jewellery is the independent label of Queensland based silversmith Jemica Ostrofski.

Great way to spend the afternoon. A presumption of peoples ability and knowledge is made first up and outside of a quick run through of the handtools it is assumed you know how to make the finished pieces. Due to class size you are often waiting on others before you can access the dremel, bench drill or ask questions.

Absolutely loved the Intro to Metalsmithing course! Meekz was such a great teacher, gave us a lot of freedom with what we wanted to create, taught us how to use and experiment with all the tools, and made for a work shop that was a heap of fun, really interesting, and has made want to learn how to do more! Thanks Meekz and Work Shop, stay wonderful x
