Jewellery from sublimation printed metal with Anna Davern – one day workshop
$175 + $45 material fee

Sublimation printing is a very exciting and simple technique of transferring images onto metal and plastic using heat. In this class, electronic files of images and photos will be printed and then transferred to a variety of plastic coated sheets of metal. This class is suitable for experienced makers as well as non-makers and a variety of techniques will be taught to then create items of jewellery from the printed material focusing on cold joining techniques. No jewellery experience required.

A $45 material fee will be payable to the tutor on the day. Students will receive a pack of sheet metal and pre-cut metal shapes and a variety of images to print.

There may be time for students to print their own images. On enrolment you will be sent details of how to prepare your images.

      Hi Craftbound,

      I haven’t made it over to Perth to run this workshop as yet. Time, distance and my disorganisation have proved too big as setbacks. 🙂 Anna
