The Art of Mixed Media Jewellery


Mixed media jewellery making is an innovative approach that blends different materials and techniques to create unique and expressive pieces. By incorporating a variety of textures, colours, and finishes, you can craft jewellery that stands out and tells a story. The juxtaposition of materials like acrylic and wood allows for endless design possibilities, offering both visual and tactile contrasts that elevate your creations.

unique, expressive jewellery that combines the best of both materials. We can't wait to see the incredible designs the attendees create!



Why Acrylic and Wood?


Acrylic and wood are a dynamic duo in the world of jewellery making. Acrylic, with its vibrant colours and glossy finish, brings a modern, contemporary feel to your designs. It's lightweight, easy to shape, and can be cut into intricate patterns. Wood, on the other hand, adds warmth and an organic touch. Its natural grain and texture provide a beautiful contrast to the sleekness of acrylic. Laminating these materials together creates a striking interplay that is both eye-catching and sophisticated.



The Creative Process


In our workshop, you'll learn the step-by-step process of laminating acrylic and wood. This technique involves adhering layers of these materials together to form a single, cohesive piece. You'll experiment with different adhesives and discover how to achieve seamless bonds that enhance the durability and aesthetic appeal of your jewellery.


One of the most exciting aspects of mixed media jewellery making is the necessity to think outside the box. Traditional jewellery often relies on soldering and heat-based methods to join materials. However, when working with acrylic and wood, cold connections become essential. These are techniques that connect pieces without the use of heat, such as rivets, screws, and even stitching. Cold connections challenge you to consider new ways of assembling your pieces, fostering innovation and problem-solving skills. In this workshop we will be using strong glues and drill holes to make our pieces wearable.

Whether you're a seasoned jeweller or a beginner looking to explore a new hobby, our workshop offers something for everyone. You'll leave with a solid understanding of the techniques involved in laminating acrylic and wood, as well as a collection of your own handmade jewellery pieces. More importantly, you'll gain the confidence to continue experimenting and creating on your own.
