Learn to decorate and colour anodised aluminium, whilst creating a cuff or pendant. You will try out several colouring and patterning processes along with simple jewellery techniques to produce something truly unique!
Since 2003 I have worked on projects with schools, colleges, galleries and community groups. I have also worked as a visiting lecturer for degree courses in jewellery, metalwork and textile print. Since 2004 I have taught private classes from my studio for small groups or individuals.
I work as a jewellery maker, selling and exhibiting throughout the UK and further afield. Over the past fifteen years I have researched, experimented and developed new techniques for colouring anodised aluminium. I have a passion for sharing knowledge and have taught jewellery making for over ten years. I am the author of the book ‘Coloured Aluminium Jewellery: design & make’.
Each course provides a good grounding of the basics and introduces students to a range of techniques and processes, giving an insight into the practice of jewellery making.
I work with students in groups or one-one and devise a programme which will suit the individual to ensure development in both learning and confidence. Advice and guidance is provided about buying tools, books and materials, for those students who wish to further their learning.

These workshops provide an opportunity for focused learning or simply a chance to get together with friends and learn something new! Workshops can be based on either silver or aluminium jewellery making and will be tailored to suit you.
