PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS: We have now started running this workshop again, albeit with restricted numbers. There are some dates available for booking via the online calendar but, if you can't see a date that works for you or doesn't have sufficient spaces, please contact us and we will assist you. Additionally, if you have a voucher that is close to expiring, please get in touch.
During this workshop you will learn to cast a small shell or fossil in silver. There will be a selection of shells available for you to cast but we would encourage you to find your own special little shell to make a piece of jewellery or keepsake with. Your tutor, Leah, will be on hand to guide you step by step and ensure you take home something special to be proud of. Leah will carry out the hot works for any youngsters attending so it is a safe workshop for even quite young children.
Included in the price are all the tools you will need to cast, clean and polish your silver shell. The silver you use to cast with will cost extra (approximately £1.20 per gramme). On average, attendees on this workshop spend between £20 and £30 on silver but the amount spent can go up drastically if you bring in a relatively large shell (or other item) to cast, so please bear this in mind.
To ensure customers' safety during the pandemic, we are currently restricting numbers. Consequently, the workshop will only last for around one or two hours (depending on the number of attendees). The sessions start at 10:30am or 2pm.
Workshops are held in the basement of our shop at 59 The Old High Street, Folkestone, CT20 1RN. There are a number of steps to the basement so this may be difficult for those with mobility issues.
There is no vehicle access to The Old High Street during the day but there is a bus stop a short walk away on Tontine Street. The nearest car park, on Tram Road, is also located nearby. The parking fee is £1.20 per hour up to a maximum of £8 for the whole day.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. Also, if you have a voucher or discount code and it doesn't work, please do not enter any payment details: contact us for assistance.
