During this workshop you will learn to cast a shell or a small 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 course 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 80 pence per gramme). On average, the workshop attendees spend between £10 and £20 on silver. You can help yourself to as much tea and coffee as you like and there is usually a good supply of biscuits in the studio too.
When booking you will have the choice of either a morning or afternoon workshop. Morning workshops run from 10:00-12:00 and the afternoon sessions run from 14:00-16:00. Available dates are shown in green or amber on the calendar when booking.
The studio is located in The Stables, 35-37 Tontine Street, Folkestone, CT20 1JT. The Mill Bay pay and display car park at the rear of the studio building costs £1 per hour/£5 for the day or, if you don't mind a short walk, you can find some free parking in local streets.
