Our first day, May 13 in the Skolan Engelska I Upplands Vasby in Stockholm has been very interesting. At the school, we met a group of students from Slovenia and we had the chance to work together.
A very appealing activity we completed today was to make jewelry from scratch. First of all, the molds had to be done in wood but before that, the kids had to come up with the idea of what they wanted. Once they drew in the piece of wood the shape that was chosen they had to saw it in order to create the mold. The third step in the forge, was the most exciting one for the students because they had the opportunity of melting the tin and put it inside the mold.
To finish the product two more steps were required, polishing the piece and add lace to make a necklace.
