This is something I've been asked for a lot over time but I thought it was something I would never be able to do. After some long and hard thinking I have come up with a solution on how I can pull off these LIVE online earring making workshops with MOI!
What you will gain out of the earring-making workshops:
- 3 pairs of finished hook earrings.
- All the tools you will need if you ever wanted to make earrings again (you would just need to buy the materials as the tools are the expensive things)
- Skills that will last you a lifetime if you wish you make yourself a pair of earrings again.
- Access to the LIVE recording of the workshop which you can watch time and time again.
- A chance to ask me as many burning questions all about earrings during the LIVE workshop!
How the online earring-making workshops will work:
First, you will select whether you would like to book onto a STUD, HOOK or HOOP earring making workshop. Stud workshops will run separately however hook and hoop making workshops will run together as they are very similar with regards to the way they are made. Secondly, you will need to choose which DATE and TIME suits you the best, as well as whether you would like to book onto a LEOPARD PRINT OMBRE or MARBLE making workshop session. Please note you DO NOTE need a third colour clay for OMBRE.
There is up to 8 spaces available on each workshop. Please note all workshops are LIVE with myself ONLINE and therefore, will be conducted via ZOOM in the comfort of your own home. If you do not wish to have your camera on, you do not have to, so please don't worry.
You do not need a computer to be able to participate in the LIVE workshops as you can also access ZOOM from the app via your phone. The link to your ZOOM workshop will be sent via email so please make sure to check your inbox before the event date and time to make sure you are prepared. The link will be sent to the email address you have provided at the checkout.
Each workshop will last between 1 hour and 1.5 hours.
With your earring making workshop, you will receive a workshop kit prepared by myself with everything you will need to be able to complete your online earring workshop. All you will need from home is a flat surface to work on, a small bowl of water, a couple of sheets of kitchen roll and a working oven.
Included in your earring-making workshop kit:
- 1 ceramic tile to work on
- 1 acrylic roller
- 1 piece of paper
- 1 piece of sandpaper
- 1 small jar of varnish
- 1 paint brush to apply the varnish
- Enough clay to make 1 small slab to cut out at least 2 pairs of earrings (Some people are cutting out up to 10 pairs)
- 2 different cutter shapes of your choice
- 1 already made pair of earrings by myself for you to finish, varnish and set your backs on (this will be selected at random from the website)
- 3 pairs of hooks ready to attach to your earrings.
- Enough jump rings needed to attach your hook fastening to your earrings.
- 1 small hand drill to make the holes in your earrings.
- 1 pair of pliers to attach your jump rings and hooks.
