Winter Workshop - Plasticsmithing

Bronwen Gwillim

Workshops & Courses | 27 January 2024 - 27 January 2024

Bronwen is an award winning artist and jeweller. She trained at Sir John Cass, Camberwell School of Art and Bath Spa University where she explored the use of plastics as part of an MA. She loves teaching and aims to support everyone, whatever their level of experience or confidence, to experiment, play and learn new skills. Waste plastic is an inspiring material and in plentiful supply.

Her bold, contemporary jewellery is made from plastic she finds on the beaches of Pembrokeshire where she lives. She is inspired by natural forms and the marks created by wind, tide and water on plastic.

During the day participants will learn about the types and characteristics of plastics readily available as waste and a range of safe, cold-working and hot working techniques that can be used to create jewellery and other small objects.

This small group workshop will include short talks, practical demonstrations and plenty of time for making and experimenting. Students will go home with new skills and understandings of how to safely use waste plastic as well as some beautiful, colourful pieces of jewellery to wear.

Please bring an apron and an item of waste plastic that you find interesting in some way

The workshop runs 10-4 with teas, coffees and a soup lunch included.
