Metal Piercing Art Experience
This experience will take you through the jewellery techniques of piercing metal. At the end of the day you will come away with a small, metal, cut out image to take away. Students should bring some examples of images they would like to try. They must also bring a piercing saw (link will be given ahead of time). This is a somewhat skilled class so would be suitable for students with a little experience of materials or those that wish to challenge themselves.
This experience is available Monday – Sunday 10am – 6pm on selected dates throughout the year.
You must be aged 16 years or over to take part in this experience.
