On the morning of Saturday 24th March 2018, Glenn and Paul, Goldsmiths and watchmakers at The Goldsmithy welcomed 11 Milton Keynes Bloggers for a master-class and brunch at their workshop. The bloggers were invited to learn about the traditional methods used to produce jewellery and were invited to have a go at the bench themselves! The bloggers also enjoyed a delicious canapé brunch and were given goody bags filled with treats from local businesses!
The guest list included bloggers: Sophie Davis, Kara Caradas, Lisa Bollins, Amanda Alston, Zoe-Lee Skelton, Char Taylor, Shanna Matthews, Elizabeth Reilly, Erin Mason, Becky Pink and Gemma Spinks. They all enjoyed a brunch and workshop led by Cartier London trained Glenn Chapman and his son, apprentice Goldsmith, Paul Chapman.
Bloggers were excited to see how The Goldsmithy design and handcraft bespoke jewellery – a special trade Glenn has been in for over 40 years. All bloggers were able to have a go at different processes used to make jewellery during the master-class – this included filing, shaping and shining metal.
The canape style breakfast supplied by Cameron’s Kitchen also went down a treat while the workshop was underway!
We would like to thank everyone who provided gifts for the goody bags which were handed out to all bloggers: Peel Juice Bar, Whitespace Yoga & Wellbeing Studio, Hello Stationary, Pasha Turkish Bar & Grill, Beauty Box by Alyson, Revolucion De Cuba, Giraffe World Kitchen, Beeswax Wraps, Popaball, Rocky Road Treats, Maaya and Cameron’s Kitchen for supplying breakfast.
