Feel the Metal (4-hour class)

with Helena Nieto

Helena opens the doors of her home-studio in Sóller to share her experience gained in recent years with metal applied to “Contemporary Jewelry”. This unique capsule workshop format for dada-days focuses on people who want to delve into the subject jewelry.

During her class, you will acquire the basics and necessary knowledge to start in the exciting world of jewelry. Working at home allows Helena to offer special attention to you. Her individual class create a familiar and welcoming environment.

Have look at Helena’s other jewelry-making course, if you prefer a 2-hour class.

The class begins “tranquila”: you will get to know each other during a coffee/tea and after a brief explanation you will see how to make your jewel.

Helena is going to show you the basic techniques, materials and tools step by step. All this from a sensitive and delicate point of view. Helena will provide some of her pieces and samples of simple bracelets, earrings and pendants in order to inspire you.

You will learn to cut with a hacksaw, to file and sand metal plates and wires. You will also use the jeweler’s micromotor to drill. Different finishes on the metal will be seen: matte, polished, diamond bur and the possibility of giving it different textures with the use of hammers and punches.

After the class, your sawing pendant in your very own design will be finished and you can take it home.

You will work with brass, although the technique is the same for metals with similar properties such as gold, silver, copper and nickel silver.
If you prefer to work with silver, Helena provides it to you without any problem. It will have an additional cost that will vary according to the weight of the piece and you can pay it directly in the class.

Each class by Helena will be very personal. Helena is able to teach you in English, Spanish or Italian and any doubts and concerns can be solved comfortably.

During the workshop you will take a short break to enjoy a delicious “coca mallorquina” and orange juice from Sóller.

Once you finished, there are plenty of possibilities nearby. You could go to the center of Sóller to have lunch and get to know its beautiful old town, or take the old tram that takes you to the port in 20 minutes where you can spend the afternoon by the sea. There is a tram stop 2 minutes away from Helena’s studio.
