Stone Set Pendant Workshop - 29th January 11-4pm
Make a gemstone set silver pendant in this fun and relaxing pop-up jewellery class in Aberdeenshire. In this workshop we will cover a variety of skills such as soldering and saw piercing and you will learn to build a bezel setting and set a stone to finish your very own unique pendant. The class will run from 11am to approximately 4pm with a break for lunch. You can bring your lunch along or visit one of the local eateries.
WHO CAN ATTEND
This class is suitable for complete beginners or anyone who has already tried jewellery making. We will have a maximum of 6 participants so there will be plenty of time for demonstrations and one-on-one guidance on the day. Over 16 years of age only.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
All materials and tools are provided. An apron is provided but you may wish to bring your own. Long hair should be tied back. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring along your glasses if you need them for close up work.
A selection of gemstones are available to choose from on the day but if you would like to bring your own it should be a cabochon cut (rounded top, flat bottom) and around 2cm in size. Faceted gemstones are not suitable for this project.
The Hut is a beautiful bright space to create in. Located in the village of Chapelton just south of Aberdeen near Newtonhill.
Whilst you’re here you might like to visit The Boxes right across the road where you’ll find an amazing variety of local small businesses with lots to offer including fruit and veg, cupcakes, ice cream and jewellery. We’re also walking distance from Brae café and Slate & Grain Brasserie if you fancy making a day of it!
The Hut is a modern fully accessible building all on one ground floor level. There’s plenty of free parking nearby on street and across the road. We’re on a main bus route from Aberdeen and Stonehaven.
