Tiara and Wedding Jewellery Intensive
This is an intensive 3-day class aimed at anyone who wants to learn tiara making and wedding jewellery in a short space of time (this class is for 3 consecutive days from the start date).
The following techniques will be covered over the three days:
Day 1 - Beginners Tiara Making: Learn to make your own tiaras from scratch using wire, pearls, crystals and beads. In this day you will make your own bands, learn to make a range of components and leave with a finished tiara. Also covered is the making of combs and hair accessories to match your tiara.
Day 2 - Intermediate Tiara Making: Day 2 will be taking your tiara making skills to the next level! Throughout the day you will learn to make two tiaras, the first one uses a combination of brass etchings and components along with stunning Swarvoski crystals to build up a beautiful, original and professional piece which combines new and more complex techniques, building on what is covered in day 1. The second tiara combines fabric flowers which you will learn to make from scratch, and millenary wire to make a very current and fashionable tiara for the trendy bride.
Day 3 - Wedding Jewellery: In the final day you will learn to make a whole range of jewellery for the perfect wedding, whether it be your own or for a friend or even as a new business idea. Throughout this class you will learn to make bracelets, earrings, necklaces and much more using a range of Swarovski crystals, pearls beads and wire.
This class is perfect for anyone who would like to make tiaras and wedding jewellery for either a business idea, for a friend or for their own wedding. The pieces of jewellery you make will be to a professional standard and will be truly unique to make you stand out from the crowd.
Each day runs from 10am-5pm and we fit in lots of projects so that you really get value for money out of the course, you will be surprised what you can achieve. This is a very popular class with excellent results so do book early to avoid missing out.
