Ginkgo Leaf Pendant and Earrings workshop. 10/11/22 - 10am - 1:30pm
Not only beautiful the Ginko Leaf is also full of symbolism. In Japanes art the ginkgo's distinctive fan-shaped leaf represents longevity and profound endurance.
I can think of no better project for us to explore some of the exciting ways in which we can manipulate, form and colour copper.
We will also create our own hand-made ear wires and embellish our ginkgo leaf shapes with gemstone cascades.
