Jewellery Making Holidays
Jewellery making holidays at Gartmore House are run by local jeweller Jo Pudelko and we offer a selection of 5-night and weekend stays.
This workshop is an ideal introduction to making rings out of silver and an opportunity to learn the basic techniques of jewellery making, including saw piercing and soldering.
The course will begin with a demonstration of how to make a basic ring out of wire. Students will practice this technique before moving on to make their own individual rings. Different textures and finishes can be applied to allow each student to create an individually designed set of rings.
Base metals and a set amount of silver are provided (more silver can be purchased at cost price) and the tutor will be on hand to work with students one-to-one guiding them through the designing and making of their rings.
What is included
- En-suite accomodation for 2 nights or 5 nights
- Expert tuition and all materials needed for your course
- Full board – full Scottish breakfast, lunch and 3-course dinner
- A trip to Loch Katrine or The Scottish Wool Centre (5 night break only)
