Sterling Silver and Gemstones, Wirework Jewellery Making Workshop - Sunday 29th January - Killiney Co Dublin

More information and images of pieces we make on the day:http://karenharperdesigns.wordpress.com/workshops/

Dates:

  •  Sunday 29th January 11am-4pm.

Cost:  65euro,

Venue: The Creative Space Killiney, Co Dublin

When teaching Jewellery making I jump straight in the deep end.  There are many lovely beading techniques but I go beyond beading using Sterling silver wire to make professional shop finished Jewellery that has value and quality .  When teaching jewellery making I go straight to Silver wire and Gemstones or Pearls. It is the higher end jewellery I prefer to work with since you will put hours into the work so it should be worth looking after and enjoying for many years to come.

Refreshments and all materails are supplied.

    HI All
    Just a reminder that Crochet class starts tonight at 7pm.  This is a 4 week course guaranteeing you will be able to pick up any pattern and crochet to your heart’s content.
    Cost is 50 euro for the course.  Refreshments provided….well you are supposed to be enjoying yourself after all!

    Also to keep you updated we have our sewing workshop booked in for Saturday 28th May.
    During this workshop you will start from scratch and walk away with a finished Cushion, piping, and zip inserted….better quality than you would buy in the shops.

    This workshop is 50 Euro.  If you had a particular project that you wanted to do just let us know.   We ask that you bring your own lunch as we are trying to keep course costs low, but we have a steady flow of teas and coffees during the day.

    Our next Jewellery workshop is this Saturday 14th and then next date will be posted on the website.
    The Jewellery we make is sterling silver and gemstones.  The techniques are shop quality and details of suppliers and about all the gemstones you use are provided to encourage you to start making all your own pieces and presents for family, friends and even start your own business is thats how you would like things to go.
    Cost for the workshop is 65 Euro.

    Crafters and Artists Support Group.
    Thursday 19th May is the first Support Group meeting.

    Open to Craft people and Artists starting out or been around for a while!

    I ran feedback meetings for artists and Crafts people of all standards and experience and they were hugely successful.  This is just resurrecting the idea as it is greatly needed when you are starting out and could do with tips and information about suppliers, where to sell and the best techniques for getting out there!

    Also when you are a craft person or Artist you can become a bit isolated when you work for yourself so it is also great to meet others that are on the same creative path as you.
    These meetings will all have a section where we will cover a topic such as website advertising, pricing your work, branding yourself and your product, selling skills, applying to shops and galleries, setting up markets or fairs.

    Also if you are interested in grouping together with others to run exhibitions and fairs then this is a great opportunity to get to know who you are dealing with and ensure your work is complimenting each other’s and not in competition.

    These meetings are open to everyone and cost 10 euro.  Refreshments provided (The tea break is where the great connections are made!)

    Mentoring

    There is a workshop coming up on Sunday 22nd of May.  All information regarding this workshop is on www.craftmentoring.com

    Whether you are staring your own craft business or going out selling your art work, it is always good to have a plan, an efficient system and good direction to get you where you want to go.

    Throughout this workshop every area of a business is covered, and each person will get an analyses before the day so every area is relevant to your business.

    Being a craft person myself and having a gallery and craft shop then running Ben Dunne’s Art gallery and Auctions, means the wealth of information I have gathered is invaluable, and always a pleasure to pass on.

    This Mentoring Workshop cost 80 Euro, and is being held in Bewleys Hotel in Leopardstown, Dublin 18

    If you are interested or know someone that would benefit from this, get in touch so we can get the process started.


    This is a blue moon newsletter; you will not be flooded with The Creative Space updates!

    Have an inspiring Day!

    Karen
