Teaching an Introduction to Jewellery at San W Gallery and Studio

Early 2016


Jeweller Leslie Matthews spent three weeks at San W Gallery in early 2016. During that time, she taught Introduction to Jewellery Making which covered a range of techniques that resulted in the participants creating their own ring, earrings and brooch/pin. Workshops participants also benefited from Leslie’s demonstrations of embossing metal, flypressing technique, patination process, riveting, disc cutting, doming and more.


While in Shanghai Leslie had the opportunity to give several artist talks about her work. Her visit also coincided with the opening of the San W Studio.
