Community Celebration Talk/Workshop Visual Art

Looking to make yourself the ultimate sparkling, tactile and fidget-friendly pendant? Then why not learn how to make your very own whirlpool pendant? A cluster of interlinking silver rings creates this beautiful kinetic whirlpool effect. You can choose from a range of different kinds of wire to create your own unique combination of rings!

In this class you will learn to form multiple silver rings, link them together and solder each individual ring! You will then clean and shine up your pendant to make it super sparkly and shiny! You will then be able to link your pendant to a nice silver chain and leave with a beautiful pendant and a big smile on your face!

16+ only. If you need glasses to see things close up, please bring them with you. Making jewellery is fiddly!
