An opportunity to create your own, unique necklace and matching earrings as well as learning the techniques needed and tools required to make your own bespoke jewellery at home. Ali will show you how to create a professional finish to your jewellery and help you to design a balanced finished look. Choose from a wide range of beautiful glass, crystal and semi-precious beads (all included in the workshop price) or bring something from your own bead stash. Your finished creations will make a beautiful gift for yourself or someone special.
About half way through the workshop we’ll provide you with a FREE hot drink from our tea room menu, plus some tasters of our delicious homemade cake. You are, or course, welcome to purchase a drink and/or cake when you arrive. Why not stay after your workshop and enjoy a browse around our beautiful shop. During the summer months we also offer a delicious cream tea in our tea room (subject to availability). All of our workshops take place within our welcoming shop and tea room, where you can be inspired by the work of our many local talented artists and makers.
These photos show you some examples of Ali’s own jewellery which she sells through The Blue Room. Ali also creates art using various media, and makes Tiffany style glass pieces, also available at The Blue Room. She likes to dabble in lots of crafts and has a background in the education world. Ali is also offering workshops at The Blue Room making Needle Felted Pictures. More details here.
