Two days filled with lots of 'how to' many processes and steps in basic jewellery making. We cover the use of a range of silversmithing tools, techniques like sawing, filing, polishing, soldering and stamping.
On day one we cover the processes and tools and on day two we make a piece of jewellery using the techniques we have learnt. It could be a bangle, a ring, earrings, pendant or even cufflinks.
This course is for beginners who would like to try out silversmithing. After this course you will know how to produce your own basic pieces of bespoke jewellery either for yourself or as gifts to others.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
I include, refreshments in the morning and afternoon on each day, a fresh and home made lunch each day, all materials needed to complete the course and produce your own piece of jewellery.
I also offer a Certificate of Attendance with the hours or work completed by each person. This is for your own enjoyment but may also be useful if you intend to apply to a higher education facility to study jewellery design or silversmithing.

This 2 day course was absolutely brilliant!
Sue was so patient and very helpful with anything you wanted to learn. I was so surprised because I wouldn’t think I would learn so so much in these 2 days, but I did! It was a brilliant 2 days and it was very enjoyable, thank you Sue!
I highly recommend!

Loved my two days on the jewellery course with Sue.
As a complete beginner I learnt so much , and am really keen now to use the skills and carry on creating.
Sue is super organised, patient and helpful and obviously extremely proficient in her field.
There is a lovely atmosphere in the studio and we were made to feel so welcome.
Thanks so much Sue, I will definitely be coming again !

This course was wonderful. Sue is a fantastic teacher, clear and patient, and I learnt so much. The jewellery-making skills that I gained on this course have enabled me to create pieces to sell, and has motivated me to practice and challenge myself further. I highly recommend this course!
Response from Sue O'Mara Art:So great to have had you here for the course, and really satisfying for me to see how your skills have just grown and grown and you now have a lovely business. Well done Laura! Best wishes, Sue
