Anodised Aluminium by Tracey Spurgin of Craftworx

Anodised Aluminium

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of making and creating colourful and fun anodised aluminium jewellery.

Unlike tradtional metalsmithing, or working with metal clay, anodised aluminium has its limitations. It can not be forged or soldered like silver. So let use show you the alternative options to create stunning contemporary jewellery designs.

This workshop is aimed at the beginner with little or no experience of any jewellery making. During the day you will be guided through the step by step techniques of handling, adding colour, patterns and designs, with all the essential techniques to achieve a professional finish to your work. We work on creating a range of samples of which you can later select your favourite to make some jewellery pieces.

You will be inspired, feeling confident to go away to apply your own creative ideas to your new skills and knowledge.

Included in the day:-

  • introduce the tools and equipment, what alternatives are suitable
  • preparing and handling the metal
  • colouring techniques
  • adding texture, form and shape
  • making your pieces into finished jewellery
  • refinement methods
  • finishing techniques

Materials will be supplied for the suggested project tasks. If you require to make more or larger pieces then you can purchase extra materails on the day from the studio.
