FINE SILVER PRAYER BOX - Two day masterclass.
Saturday & Sunday 6-7 October 2018
9:00am - 5:30pm

We're very pleased that Wanaree Tanner is coming back to our studio this October! She'll be teaching 2 different masterclasses over 2 weekends and these will be the only chances to join Wanaree for a class in the UK this year, so don't miss out!

Prayer boxes have long been worn as personal talismans. Some cultures fill the space with small scrolls with written prayers, others fill them with nothing more than the space created in prayer. Whatever the contents, these are beautiful and special heirloom pieces, and now you have the chance to create one of your own!

In this 2-day masterclass, Wanaree will teach you the most efficient way to construct a small, tension closure and hinged locket. You'll learn so many useful techniques including; Wanaree's complete Signature Die Cut Tool method, Hollow Form System, best clay refinement practises, simplified self-contained hinge construction, the tricks of tension closures, ornamental swing bail, and Wanaree's preferred metal finishing process! After two days, you'll leave with an incredibly detailed, unique and very special fine silver prayer box that you can hang on a chain or on a charm bracelet, and many new techniques that you can put into practise on future projects too!
