March 22: Bangles
The return of another popular class from last year – bangle design.
These pieces of jewellery are fairly narrow so this needs to be factored into your design. But the colours reproduce well in the printing process so photographs and repeating patterns work well.
Designs are printed onto special paper and then go through a heat transfer process in a press to put them onto the bangles. With Wednesday night classes growing in popularity, Angus will be tied up with this process for much of the night. Any digital images you want to use, please email to Angus beforehand so he can prepare the image properly beforehand. High-resolution images are best.
There is a choice of two sizes of bangle: a narrow white one and a wider silver one.
Each printed bangle costs £5.
And just for good measure, there will be a committee meeting.
Dec 7: On repeat
Wednesday night’s class offers a second chance to get your mugs and bracelets printed.
And it’s a chance to make progress on any of your unfinished work.
Remember that the theme for our next exhibition is Cairngorms so any pictures that fit in with this subject will be perfect for the big show!
Nov 30: Making mugs and jewellery
This week you can get a few Christmas present ticked off – we’re making mugs and bracelets.
For newer members, Angus will be using his special printing equipment to print pictures onto mugs.
And new for this year, he can also print onto curved metal bracelets. Each product costs £5 and the bracelets come with a lovely presentation case.
All you need to bring are some pictures to scan – or you can draw something in class. Images work best when they have a clean white background – see below for a montage of our products from last year, and an example of the bracelets.
