    Precious Metal Clay Jewellery

    Precious metal clay has taken the jewellery world by storm! It is a fantastic material to work with as it has the versatility of clay and once fired it turns into 99.9% silver. We will look at designs you can create, either earrings or a pendant, then show you how to make a moulding compound which will be used to cast your chosen object or texture. The PMC is then pressed into the mould, fired with a torch and polished using a rotary polisher. Liver of sulphur may then be applied to enhance the texture/design. The pieces will then be finished - by forging silver ear wires and piercing the final piece to create earrings or creating a hanging bail for a pendant. You will be amazed at the results you will achieve!

    The Goring and Streatley Regatta and River Festival – 17 July 2021

    The Goring & Streatley Regatta and River Festival is held every two years, alternating with the Goring Festival. Around 2000 people attend each year to watch up to 40 crews battle it out on the river in what is often a display of spectacularly optimistic rowing.  It’s not just rowing – there are other races too – canoeing and mini dragon boats.

    All day bar, live music, stalls, food court, with a funfair, bouncy castle and amusements for children – the emphasis is on entertainment both on and off the water for children and adults. It’s a brilliant day out!

    Rowing starts at 9am, with all entertainments full blast from 11am. The last race is at 6pm and the fun continues with the prize giving, with the bar open to 8pm (or beyond if the barrels aren’t empty).

    We are strictly following the Government’s and British Rowing’s Covid policies, and therefore we may have to adapt the regatta to fit any changes at short notice.

     

    For enquiries about racing and entries, please contact race@goringgapbc.org.uk.

    For enquiries about the regatta in general, please contact regattachairman@goringgapbc.org.uk.

    It should be a great day out for the whole family after a long and dreary lockdown!

    Free for children!

    Tickets are available on the day. Parking is free.
    Entrance to the regatta is £8 for adults and children 16 years and over.
    Kids and under 16s go free, but must be accompanied by a fee paying adult.

    The regatta site is located just outside Streatley on the Berkshire bank of the Thames. By car leave Streatley heading north on the A329 Wallingford Road, keep right where a side road forks left to Blewbury, go through a width restriction and 100 meters further on turn right down a farm lane which will be clearly signposted REGATTA.
    For satnav users, post code RG8 9PU will take you right to the entrance.
    By boat. There are a few mooring spaces below Cleeve Lock or upstream of the regatta, around the bend towards the Beetle and Wedge.
