Last weekend I headed off to the Sorting Office in Eastleigh for a day of bangle making with six other ladies. The workshop was hosted by Joanne Tinley – I’ve had a private lesson with her before, so knew I was in for a great day.
The workshop taught us how to make an anti-clastic bangle. The ‘anti-clastic’ bit is talking about the shape. In the same way that a Pringle crisp curves outwards, so do these bangles. This outward curve is called anti-clastic.
It was a really fun day. Joanne does more than just show you how to do it – she really takes the time to explain what to do and why, so you really get a good understanding of the process.
It ran from 10am-4pm, although we were all such excellent students we finished early!
It’s really got me wanting to get back into jewellery making. I do dabble a bit here and there, but I really want to make sure I put time aside on a regular basis to do it. I’ve got a lot of the kit now, so it seems a shame not to make the most of it.
So you may start to see more jewellery posts on here soon!
