About the Course
This 10 week silver jewellery course is suitable for both complete beginners & those with experience of jewellery making .
Join me in my purpose built jewellery workshop to begin your journey into the wonderful world of silver jewellery making.
Working with silver sheet, wire and base metals you will be shown lots of techniques suitable for your level of experience. Building a solid foundation in traditional jewellery making techniques, such as piercing, filing, forming & soldering, the focus will be on developing & consolidating these skills while introducing more advanced skills such as stone setting, mixed metal inlay, raising, etching etc.
Places are limited to 4 students ensuring plenty of access to tools and tutor guidance.

I started with a beginners silversmithing course nearly 2 years ago and I am hooked. Lucy is a brilliant tutor. Calm, patient and with meticulous attention to detail. Her workshop/studio is light and airy and very well equipped. I cannot recommend Lucy and her courses highly enough.

I am on my second 10-week progression course with Lucy and I love it! She has lots great tools in her studio and each student has their own bench space. Lucy works at the pace of each student, so there are times when we are all working on something different. It means you learn from what other people are doing too which is great.
I have also recently completed one of Lucy's one-day course in Flush Setting. It was quite fiddly, but great fun.
If you have never had a go at making jewellery, Lucy is the perfect teacher. Just be warned it's slightly addictive!

This is my fourth year learning from Lucy. Her courses are thorough, build on skills learned and she makes learning fun in a bright, light, well equipped studio. She is patient and knowledgable and her gentle yet firm approach always ensures the learner feels encouraged and achieves their best results. I can't praise these courses highly enough!

I cannot recommend the course highly enough. Lucy is a great tutor who does an excellent job of sharing her knowledge and teaching silversmithing techniques. The studio is bright, comfortable and very well equipped.
