Silver Leaf Making Workshop

Bring a natural touch to your daily accessories at this craft class in London.

3 hours Class size 4 to 5     label £40

Whether you're looking for a gift for a nature lover or want to take your first steps in jewellery making, this craft class in South London is a brilliant way to get your creative fix.

Hosted by a local artisan in a cosy, welcoming studio space, you'll learn all the skills you'll need to turn a real leaf into a wearable piece of art. Whether it's for a pendant, a pair of earrings or a bracelet charm, it's a lovely way to make a piece of unique, natural-looking jewellery.

Guided by your expert teacher, you'll take a real leaf and paint it with a silver clay paste which when heated burns away the leaf and leaves you with a silver replica of the leaf – it's an amazing process and an incredibly interesting way to make jewellery.

Through creating your leaf and finishing it to a professional standard, you'll get a glimpse into a wide array of crafting skills.

Don't worry if this is your first foray into this kind of crafting, as your friendly host will be on hand to ensure you leave the class not only with a gorgeous, perfect replica of the leaf of your choice, but also the skills you'll need to carry on this hobby for yourself.

Please note: While the equipment and tools are all provided, you'll need to pay for the sterling silver used in your project on the day. Material cost is based on the weight of your finished pieces. You are able to make as many leaves as time allows. As a rough guide, approximately £3 of silver is required for a small leaf to £10 for a large leaf.

Class was located in a lovely setting. The instructor was punctual, most knowledgeable and fully prepared. All tools and materials were available. The class was exactly what I hoped for and I was delighted with the result. Good classes are expensive. This one gave me all the information I need to proceed on my own and that, I value.
