Holiday gifts are getting personal at Heidi Lowe Gallery, which is hosting make-your-own jewelry classes this fall. The classes are geared toward people of all ages and abilities.
“In three hours, I will teach you how to make a piece of jewelry, and you will be able to walk out of the door with a quality piece handmade by you,” gallery owner Lowe said. “Our classes are great for any beginner to even more advanced jewelers. We can accommodate kids as young as 12 and parties up to nine people. It is a great opportunity to create one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and loved ones.”
Scheduled classes are from 5 to 8 p.m. most Thursdays through Dec. 6. Each class will focus on a specific skill in the jewelry-making process. The schedule is as follows: Nov. 15, Textured earrings; Nov. 29, Silver ring; and Dec. 6, Set a stone.
All classes include at least three hours in the studio and a sterling silver piece of jewelry, which each participant can wear out the door. Materials and tools are provided for the class. The cost is $100 per person, and group rates are available for parties of six to nine.
Lowe is also excited to announce Make Your Own Wedding Ring workshops, which are available year-round and provide couples with the opportunity to participate in the process of creating one-of-a-kind wedding rings, gifts for groomsmen or bridesmaids, and everything in between. For questions about scheduling or to reserve a class, contact the gallery at 302-227-9203.
