Fabric and Fibre Jewellery
Take a look above to see examples of what can be made in this class. These images are of students' and tutors' work.
Spend a day using fabric and fibre to create colourful statement jewellery that is lightweight and cost effective. It is also a great way to use leftover fabric or recycle materials.
All the jewellery in this class can be made with hand sewing techniques and doesn’t require any specialised equipment.
Techniques covered in this class include:
Making felt beads and canes from wool fleece
Choosing and preparing fabrics
Creating flowers and rosettes
Adding beads and buttons
Working with zips
Building up elements into a statement necklace.
And much more...
Whether you come from a sewing or a jewellery background or are an absolute beginner, this is a fun and creative day when you can use a series of techniques to let your imaginations take flight.
The day runs from 10am - 5pm and we fit in lots of projects so that you really get value for money out of the day, most students make at least 2-3 pieces of finished jewellery to take home.

The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 8.
We take an hour break for lunch and there are plenty of local shops to get food from, or you can always bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio. If you have any questions regarding this, or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
