In this hands-on workshop, "ringworks" you will learn techniques to make a ring designed and hand made by you!

Set in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya which has expansive views over a valley of trees, the property backs onto the national park.

You will begin learning how to work with metal, first using copper to practice saw-piercing and texturing which will help develop your idea. Then move on to creating your own beautiful sterling silver ring.

With time to focus and hone your skills, this class, open to all levels, is the perfect starting point to get creative and make some fabulous wearable piece of your own design.

The workshop is for beginners or anyone with some experience. All materials will be provided at no extra cost.

Essential techniques covered:

  • Metal cutting – learn how to saw-pierce metal using professional jewellery saw frames
  • Texturing and stamping – whether it’s a hammered texture or stamping, there is a range of tools to experiment with
  • Anneal and Soldering – using special jewellery torches watch how to anneal metal and solder
  • Finishing – learn how to file and use emery paper to give your earrings a final finish.

BYO your lunch, take a break, enjoy the view from the studio and chatting with other class participants.

Fran is an artist; an educator, neither overshadows, they simply entwine and enrich one another.

At a young age Fran discovered the value of creating art in her daily life. The act of art helped Fran express her identity. The process of developing an idea, especially with jewellery, seeing that idea come to completion by Fran's own hand filled her with satisfaction and accomplishment.  Fran began to see how creating art helped other aspects of my life and learning.

Fran is inspired by nature, patterns, form and texture. Each created piece portrays a slice of life, a perspective of the world in which we all live. Her mediums span painting and jewellery to collage and stitching. They all bring joy, though not everything turns out how she envisaged.

In particular Fran sees the unique design and individually handcrafted nature of bespoke jewellery as an ornamental way of extending personal self-expression. During the creative process, she is mindful that someone will be wearing the piece and it will come alive only when it finds its owner.

Fran is most comfortable in the studio classroom teaching art than in any other place or endeavour. It fills her soul to help others learn by exposing them to tools, materials and techniques of Fran's trade and then develop their skills and confidence in the creative medium.

Through support, conversation and laughter, I set a welcoming scene of free expression.

Ladybird Design Creative Studio is the culmination of creating a life around my passions of art, jewellery and teaching. It frees Fran to take a piece of silver, blank canvas or paper, turn it into a beautiful thing and share it with the world every day. Fran believes now more than ever that pursuing one’s passions makes life more colourful and vibrant, gives us pleasure and purpose, but most of all it reminds us of who we are.

Fran would love to share the joy of creating and making with you.
