Workshop at Y Galeri

Well, what a  busy week! Last Saturday saw another pendant workshop completed at Y Galeri in Caerphilly and another 6 (& a half!) ladies spent 2 busy hours learning skills to complete some lovely glass and wire wrapped pendants. Considering almost all had no previous experience of jewellery making I am once again blown away with the quality of their finished designs. A young lady joined us too and made a  gorgeous purple heart pendant that just shows what can be achieved when you pick up some tools and have a  go.

The ladies were introduced to several tools and their purpose before learning basic techniques such as creating loops and wire wrapping. They reluctantly agreed to having their pictures taken but after all their hard work they shouldn't be so shy!

The workshops at Y Galeri have proved popular and we will be arranging further dates for the coming weeks. Anyone who is interested in putting their name down can contact Jan at Y Galeri on 02920861433

Y Galeri currently has a fantastic open art exhibition on as well as stocking some gorgeous handmade gifts in the shop, visit their Facebook page for further details and look out for the new website, available soon.
