Saturday 4 February
Loughrea School of Art are hosting a second jewellery skills workshop with Fergus Grant Stevenson. In this workshop you will learn to make a stamped and textured sterling silver ring of your own design. A fun and informative 4 hour workshop where students will learn to use the tools and techniques needed to work precious metals. The Make a Ring workshop is suitable for beginners but will also be of interest to students with previous metalworking experience. You will also get a full list of the tools you will have used, a list of suppliers and sources of further information – should you want to continue jewellery making on your own.
Fergus has been making jewellery for over 15 years and has been teaching jewellery skills classes for 8 years.
He designs and hand crafts several ranges of silver jewellery and creates bespoke commissions for his clients. Pieces of his work have been commissioned by the Limerick Museum and have been presented to the President of Ireland. Fergus has taught classes and demonstrated his jewellery skills at the National Museum, the National Crafts and Design Fair, the Electric Picnic festival and many cultural venues.
Adults Jewellery Workshop: 1pm to 5pm. Limited to 8 places. Cost €80 includes all materials
