Jewellery Making 101, Part A: All about the Tools
Learn about the tools you need to make jewellery for yourself and others!
So you want to make jewellery, but you have no idea where to start. Join Pamela Kearns and explore the various basic and specialty tools that you may need to start your new hobby. Guess what – you don’t need all of them! We’ll discuss what you will need now and what can wait until later.
In addition to discussing which tool does what, Pam will also be doing lots of demos to show you how the the tools work. You’re welcome to do demos with the instructor or watch, listen and ask lots of questions before you make your tool purchases. We’ll discuss costs and the differences between less expensive and more expensive options. This is a stand-alone class; you do not this as a prerequisite for other Jewellery Making 101 classes.
