Jesmonite Jewellery Workshop | Niamh Duddy

Jesmonite Jewellery Workshop | Niamh Duddy

17 Nov

Join maker Niamh Duddy for a practical workshop learning the fundamental basics of jesmonite jewellery production - with the opportunity to create a bespoke item to take home on the day.

Participants will learn how to cast terrazzo effect brooches in various silicon moulds. Design your colour palette, then learn how to mix and add pigment to jesmonite. Finally you will sand and seal your brooch to make a wearable piece! You will produce 1-3 different brooches during the workshop.

Jesmonite is a composite material invented in the UK in 1984 by Peter Hawkins. Jesmonite is a sustainable material, often likened to ceramic or concrete. Moulds or casts are often used in the process of jewellery production.

This workshop is for beginners and all materials will be provided.
