Salt Water Etching & Riveting (Cold Connections) Workshop

3 Days / 4 Nights - £545 (including accommodation)
La Vidalerie jewellery making holidays were featured in the Sunday Times Best 100 Summer Holidays 2011

This is a really fun workshop using salt water and a battery to etch copper !

We'll explore different ways of creating a resist on metal (you can use your own designs or if you are not feeling very artistic I'll have lots you can use).

You'll use an easy to set up salt water etching technique that you an replicate at home. We may also etch a silver piece using a similar method but with silver nitrate.

You will make your etched pieces into jewellery using a variety of techniques including drilling, sawing, forming and riveting.

Riveting is a great way of joining metal withour soldering, we will be working in silver and copper and you will learn how to make your own fine silver nail head rivets to join bangles and rings as well as wire riveting multi layers for pendants and earrings.

Workshops are kept small 1-4 people to make sure you get lots of attention and you will stay in your own room in a cosy renovated cottage.
