When is this workshop?
Thursday 21st March 2024 7pm-8:15pm (Uk Time) via Zoom.
What happens once I've booked onto the workshop?
If you have booked onto the workshop I will email you with more information. If you are ordering a kit please order by the 15th March to give me enough time to post your kit, which will be sent first class.
I will email you a Zoom workshop link a few days before the workshop.
What will I learn in this workshop?
You will learn how to emboss on lightweight metal using specialist tools which come with the workshop kit. I will also show you different objects etc that you can use to achieve different marks and textures. We will translate your ideas from paper to metal surface. You can create a series of smaller hanging pieces and turn them into a garland or make individual hanging pieces and adorn a Christmas tree with them. Handmade objects are really special and the metal pieces I've been creating for the past 5 years or so are a nod to nostalgia. I will show you examples of my work from when I first started doing this process and showcase some of my projects with the V&A and more.
You will learn how to apply writing and text as well as line and marks onto metal through the embossing and drawing process.
I highly recommend ordering an embossing kit if you are wanting to take part in this workshop as it is a really good starting point to learn from. For each person taking part in the workshop please purchase accordingly.

How many spaces are on this workshop?
will this workshop be recorded?
Not this time, unfortunately. I am working on changing this next year and getting better at thinking of how I can make workshops accessible beyond the live demonstrations. However it is important to be to be fully present when I am teaching and I am always able to answer questions (when I can) from people who have taken part in a workshop.
