Intro to Metal Smithing and Hand-sawing Workshop

Learn metal smithing and hand-sawing techniques with Meekz Contemporary Jewellery



4 hours Class size 1 to 12     label $120

Under the guide of Silversmith Jemica Ostrofski, learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals in this Brisbane workshop! During this beginner's workshop, the basic metalsmithing techniques of mark-making will be explored using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps, hand-sawing and other tools. You will then have the opportunity to create your own unique design. This introduction-style workshop will run for four hours in which you will have the option of making a pendant, earrings, cuff links or brooch.

This workshop hosts a maximum of 12 students, ensuring everyone gets the most out of a session.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

Meekz Contemporary Jewellery is the independent label of Queensland based silversmith Jemica Ostrofski. In 2009 Jemica graduated from the Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Art with First Class Honours, after majoring in Gold and Silversmithing and gaining a passion for minimalist sculptural form.

Adopting an ethically responsible and environmentally friendly practice, all Jemica’s collections are made using recycled, found and repurposed materials. Using traditional silversmithing techniques Jemica transforms the everyday into something unique and beautiful.

Jemica runs workshops in metal texturing (mark making with metal), recycled wire weaving (our signature jewellery style of wire manipulation and weaving), riveting and hand sawing (traditional riveting and hand sawing skills), copper ring making (metal texturing and ring making techniques) and traditional ring making for two (traditional soldering techniques used in ring making).

I really enjoyed the class. The setting was relaxed with room to move. There were plenty of tools provided to make many different projects.
