This is a workshop of learning about setting gemstones.
It has been compressed into two full and spectacular days (for those who are here for a short time and want to learn quickly) and at a wonderfully affordable price.
You will learn what a "cabochon" stone is and you will learn how to set one with a "bezel setting" in a simple pendant or ring. This workshop has been thinned to accommodate simple design ideas and more space to watch and learn with an excursion on the first day workshop to Celuk. This is a special excursion to see how silver is smelted and made into wire and sheet.
We want you to be able to create something quickly and walk away feeling like you were able to accomplish it with little stress and plenty of time to learn.
You don't have to be a professional to do this course, we hold your hand the whole way. In fact we show you right from the beginning how silver bullion in raw form, is transformed into silver sheet and wire.
This is a working studio, teaching a variety of simple silver-smithing skills. The studio is set in a banana plantation, inside a traditional white air-conditioned Joglo with high ceilings. Its a perfect place to dream, design, make and ultimately take your piece home.
Taught by European speakers who also have the ability to teach in Indonesian, this full day class runs from 10am to 4pm and includes a healthy Western style lunch of quiches, pastas and salads, complete with seasonal fruit platters and gournet cakes.
