Join me, Laura, of Porth Jewellery in a fun and inspiring workshop, making your own

piece of seaglass jewellery in Falmouth, Cornwall.

Whether you are a keen maker, looking for an activity to do with friends, meet new people or on holiday in Cornwall, I will help you create a piece of seaglass jewellery to treasure in our workshops. A great way to meet like-minded people, learn new skills and create a piece of jewellery to be proud of.

This is a full day workshop held from 9am until approximately 4pm depending on how chatty the group is!  During the lunch break you are a short distance from many wonderful cafes and coffee shops.
£110 weekdays

£120 weekends

This includes all of the silver and refreshments.

£15 – bangle supplement for 2mm width wire

This workshop is held at Inspire Makers, 5 High Street, Falmouth, Cornwall.

Parking is available in numerous town centre car parks and street parking.

Accessibility: There is no parking directly outside and one step inside the building to reach the workshop studio.

You can choose between making a seaglass ring or necklace.  There is also the option of making a seaglass bangle (additional supplement and prior notice required).  All require a silver bezel setting which we will make first together.  Then, each variation will be explained and demonstrated to you.  This way, if you have booked as a group, you can all attend the same session.

You will be able to choose between different chain lengths: 16″, 18″, 20″

All chains are the same as advertised on the website which are silver curb diamond cut chains.

<<    Ring    >>

We will measure your ring size and calculate the measurement to cut silver wire.  If the ring you are making is not for you, you will need to come with the ring size.  You will form the ring and add texture before we join it to your setting.  We will use 2.3mm wire with a variety of finishes and textures to choose from.

<<    Bangle   >>

We will measure your hand size and calculate the measurement to cut silver wire.  If the bangle you are making is not for you, you will need to come with the size.  You will add texture to the wire before forming it into a bangle and joining it to your setting.  Your bangle will be formed using 2mm round wire.

*There is an additional cost for the extra silver.

About your Day

>>  Before the session:

If you have your own seaglass please send me a photo before to check that it is suitable.

If you would like to choose seaglass from the Porth collections, I would ask at this time that you contact me before the session so that we can choose a piece before, therefore limiting the amount of pieces touched.  You can contact me on social media or here.

It may help if you think about the colour and size that you would like to help you make a decision!

Looking at our instagram pages may help you to think about what seaglass you would like:

>>  At the session:

You would be greeted with a tea or coffee and the workshop will be explained in more detail.  Further information will be sent to you a week before your booked date.

We will start by checking our seaglass and making the settings, learning how to saw, file, join and finish.

> If you are making a ring you will then measure your ring size and calculate the length of wire needed.  You will be shown a variety of finishes you can create.

> If you choose to make a necklace you will be shown how to make jump rings and can add your own design touches.

> If you wish to make a bangle you will be shown how to measure your bangle size and calculate the length of wire needed.  You will use 2mm wire and be shown two ways of adding your seaglass setting.

Your pieces will be polished whilst you enjoy a hot drink and biscuits.

To complete the session you will be shown how to set the seaglass into your jewellery and your creations will be photographed.

Please use the drop-down on the bookings page to see upcoming dates and availability.

I have been lucky enough to attend two of Laura’s sea glass workshops now and they are so much fun! The best gift idea for anyone you know who loves sea glass. Even my partner enjoyed himself and he’s not into anything crafty! A must-do if you’re in Cornwall ????

This was an amazing ring making session with Laura. Laura’s instructions were simple yet precise. She was supportive during the whole session and help make an incredible ring. Would definitely recommend and especially as a gift for your partner.

Absolutely awesome day at Laura’s Seaglass Workshop – I wouldn’t have believed that I could make something so amazing, and professional looking, entirely from scratch. Laura is so friendly, kind, encouraging, and patient, and our small group bonded very quickly and shared lots of stories and laughs, so I also found it a very relaxing experience.
If you love sea glass and silver, and you want to learn a new skill (and Laura has serious skills!) then I cannot recommed Laura’s workshop highly enough. I will definitely be booking another!

I was given a workshop voucher for my birthday, along with my “sister”, to make a Seaglass ring (which I love). Our group on the day was lovely and supportive which was great. Laura is very welcoming and friendly and a great host, supplied plenty of hot drinks on a very wet day. Laura is a very good teacher and great in her craft. We all produced some lovely pieces! I look forward to another workshop experience in the future to make another fab piece of personal jewellery!
