What you'll do

I'll greet you outside my studio which is only 2 minutes walk from Leeds Train Station. I'll show you inside and make us a cuppa (you'll get to pick your favourite handmade mug from my mega mug collection!) while you can have a look at some examples of my jewellery and have a nosey what my working studio looks like. To eliminate the stress of trying to think of what design to make your pin badges, everyone makes the same pair of cute geometric pins (shown in photos) but if you're a whizz on the saw you might have time to give your own design a go! You will work from you own set of tools and I will first demonstrate a group of processes on my tools, then you follow my lead on your own set of tools, so you really will have made the pins with your own hands from start to finish! You will learn how use a jewellers saw to pierce shapes from brass sheet, before filing, sanding and polishing them up pretty by hand ready to attach on pin backs for an extra special souvenir you can treasure forever and wear with pride. I pride myself on the fun, friendly and informal atmosphere of my workshops and can promise you we'll have fun and there will be plenty of time for you to find out more about the studio, my work, or just some Leeds recommendations!

Séarlait

Hello! I started my simplicity seeking jewellery brand 'Today' 3 years ago after falling in love with jewellery making on an evening course. I took my tools to the road and made jewellery on the move from the back of my self-built campervan for 6 months before returning to the UK rooting my little business back in the city I fell in love with when I first moved here 10 years ago to go to Art School. A lifelong maker and passionate champion of the positive effects of getting crafty (I even have a first class degree in Furniture Making!), I now run Leeds only City Centre creative workshop venue from my working studio, where I host fun, friendly & informal jewellery making workshops AND host guest workshops from some of the most exciting independent makers around. Ultimately I want to share the joy I get from making, with others :)
