Try your hand at silversmithing! Learn how to make a silver pendant from scratch, gaining a basic understanding of silversmithing tools and processes.

 

To create your own silver pendant, you will start with a piece of copper to trial your design and refine your silversmithing skills, and then move on to the silver. Your final work will be polished and put onto a solid silver chain as a completely unique, wearable work of art.

PYA Photograph Your Artwork (2D) 

Saturday 25th September

Book Binding Workshop

Friday 15th October

10am - 4pm
£55

Learn the exacting craft of bookbinding.

During this class you will learn that there is far more to paper craft than you at first thought. Every choice you make when binding your sketchbook, for example what adhesive you use, how you fold the paper, what material you select for the cover, will impact on the technique and the aesthetic of the finished piece.

No prior knowledge or experience is required; our expert tutor will guide you through the process and explain the deviations and tricks you may use along the way. All materials and printed notes will be provided.

We have two dates coming up, one in July and one in October. Select which one you want to attend when you check out.

Sculpture and Dry Clay Building Workshop: Medieval Architecture & Gargoyles 

Saturday 16th October

10am - 4pm 

£85
 

A unique opportunity to develop your drawing and sculpting skills using a variety of media and techniques. 

 

Norwich is a beautiful historic city full of creative possibilities. We will be working directly from observational drawings and photos of our local medieval architecture, Cathedral, churches and  buildings in Tombland, Elm Street and even the historic building which Anteros calls home. 

 

We will explore and develop these drawings/images back in the studio space at Anteros using graphite, wax resist and 3D contour drawings to produce a number of possibilities and design ideas to be made with dry clay. Outcomes can then be painted using ceramic paints and alternatives, for a final finish.

Light and Lighting for photographers

Saturday 4th December

10am - 4pm 

£65
 

Whatever your interests – portraits, landscapes, product photography for your business – the secret behind all great photography is the light you use. How you find it, create it, control it, understand its characteristics, explore its potential, and use it to create meaningful and insightful images. 

 

You don’t need expensive flashguns or lighting kits. Most of the light available to you is completely free: so we’ll look at ways to create and control it, often with the use of simple household materials.

Participants will be guided by experienced professional photographer Jeremy Webb, with a range of practical exercises in daylight, studio, flash, low light, and a thousand other useful tips and tricks to illuminate your ideas and help you to create the kind of photography you never thought possible.

Bring your own projects to work on, and your own cameras.
