Ragley Jewellery Making

Come and join us at Ragley’s very own Art Studio, housed in the beautiful stabling area for this fun jewellery making class. With the help and guidance of an experienced jewellery maker and tutor, create your own pieces using threading and wire wrapping techniques. Choose from a large selection of beads and finishes, from beautiful sparkly faceted glass to freshwater pearls, vintage style brass components (including beautiful ‘Vintaj Natural Brass’), as well as silver and gold plated findings.

You could make a long, ‘Downton Abbey’ inspired 1920’s styled necklace, pretty pearl earrings, bracelets with tons of sparkle, or something modern and classic. The design possibilities are endless. Whatever you choose to make, I will ensure it is finished beautifully. I will also make certain that you leave with pieces which more than equal the cost of the course in retail value, along with your new skills. So why not come and join us to create your own unique Christmas gifts.

All courses run from 10am-2pm on: Sat October 12th, Sat Nov 7th and Sat Dec 7th. For further information, or to book, please contact Kate on: 07834282193

Ragley Arty Afternoon Workshop

Our first Ragley Arty Afternoon was a really informal workshop taking in the architecture of the Hall and the panoramic views. Use the opportunity to develop your chosen practice, as a chance to try some new techniques or even mix them up, beginners are very welcome.

This is a very relaxed session to sketch/paint and enjoy  conversation with other artists in a different environment which cannot fail to inspire. The stables are located very close to the Hall which is placed beautifully on top of the hill so lots of walking is not necessary to gain some stunning view points.

Looking forward to the next one.
