Have a go at making Anglo-Saxon inspired jewellery

Course date: Saturday 20 October

Time: 10.30 – 17.00

Read the full course outline.

The Anglo-Saxons wore jewellery, including brooches, beaded necklaces and bracelets, made from gold, silver, bronze and copper. These adornments were important status symbols, worn to show their wealth and rank. This masterclass focuses on the spiral and scroll designs that commonly decorated Anglo-Saxon manuscripts, metalwork and carvings on stone crosses. 

With expert guidance from jewellery artist Sam Rowena Taylor, learn how to work with wire to recreate some of these spiral designs. Use your own creativity and inspiration from the Library’s new landmark exhibition Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms, to turn these designs into a bespoke jewellery creation to take home, such as earrings, pendants or charms.
