Jewellery workshops at Ocean Studios
shh by sadie jewellery workshop ocean studios royal william yard plymouth

This week I’ve been running more jewellery workshops at Ocean Studios! If you know me, you’ll know how much I love making jewellery and how I love helping others make their own beaded creations!

On Sunday I ran two workshops - make your own beaded necklace and bracelet, as well as make your own painted leather feather earrings.

In the first workshop you choose from hundreds and hundreds of beads to design your own bead bracelet and necklace. It’s suitable for all levels - young AND old! It’s wonderful to see the creations everyone comes up with.

The second workshop - you choose from a selection of leathers (vegan leather also available!) to cut out, paint and construct two pairs of earrings. Some participants chose to make the feathers for their first pair, and then experiment with their second pair! Exciting!

The workshops are held in the cafe at Ocean Studios, and take place again on Wednesday 19th February.

Illuminate light festival in Plymouth - check out our Glowing Bead workshops!

Last weekend I was thrilled to be a part of Plymouth’s illuminate light festival.

Illuminate was a fantastic visual feast for the senses and showcased projections and light art installations from local, national and international artists. It was held in the stunning Royal William Yard, with light installations dotted throughout the buildings, archways and the Secret Garden, where the Glowing Bead workshops were held!

If you’ve known Shh for a while, you may remember that I ran similar bead workshops for New Zealand’s LUX light festival in Wellington (you can see pix here and here). Children make their own glow in the dark beaded necklace, bracelet or headband using a variety of neon strings, glowing and non-glowing beads. The sessions are always so much fun to run, so I was excited to be part of illuminate and run them again in Devon!

The workshops ran every evening throughout the festival, in rain or, erm, non-rain, and I was amazed by the creativity and enthusiasm of each and every child (and adult!). Every person eagerly wore their beaded creation as they left the workshop, with a few little ones telling me they were going to “keep it on forever”. Awwww!

As usual, I was so busy running the workshops that I forgot to take any actual pictures of the beads! Whoops. THANK YOU to everyone who visited us this year at illuminate, and HUGE THANKS to the wonderful illuminate volunteers who helped you all make your glowing jewels!

Check out some of the fantastic illuminate light works here.
