Metal Forming Workshop

  • Bead It 2058 South Lamar Boulevard Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

Come learn the ropes of metal forming from our partners at Bead It! 

This workshop will show you how to use basic jewelry tools like anvils and hammers to bend and form large gauge wire into stylish earrings. We'll form and hammer wire into a variety of shapes to create a pair of bold and simple earrings.  You will have the option to embellish your piece with beads or keep it simple. You'll come away from this workshop with a unique handmade pair of earrings! 

Our instructor, Ashley Schor, is a maker and mover in Austin, TX. She delves into all kinds of art forms from theater to pottery, mobiles to painting, but her main passion is interior design and sparking a creative drive in others!  Ashley owns Bead It on South Lamar and finds that jewelry is a wonderful way to get others started in the arts. It's a great medium because we wear it, and we already know what kinds of things we like to wear!  With just a few simple techniques, you can create so much!  It's a process that naturally lends itself to learning more and building on itself.
