About the Course

7 Week Silver - Smithing Jewellery Making Course

The Course runs-over eight weeks on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening from 6 - 8:30pm

The course content consists of:
2 weeks learning how to make stacker rings.
2 Weeks learning how to make cuff Bracelets and Bangles
2 Weeks learning how to use and mould Prometheus and Silver
1 Week Working on a project piece of your choice based upon some of the skills you have learned from attending the course.

If you are interested in learning how to make your own Silver jewellery, along with learning Silversmithing skills then this is the course for you. The Silversmithing course is suitable for absolute beginners to people with some prior experience who may wish to build on the skills they already have.

The skills you will learn during the course are how to measure your fingers and wrist to cut the correct size Copper & Sterling Silver metals. Students will learn how to Anneal & shape the different metals into the desired jewellery shape, along with learning how to saw, soldier & cure the metals before finishing with buffing and polishing them to a high shine finish.

This course is very interactive and continued support is offered throughout the length of the course, whilst at the same time allowing students to work independently.

The course runs for 2.5 hours each week, but on the odd occasion can slightly overrun to enable students to complete the piece of jewellery they are working on.

At the time of booking we require a £25.00 deposit to secure your place on the course, payable via PayPal invoice emailed to you, upon receipt of your email address. With the remaining balance payable on the first day of the course. This can be paid via cash or credit/debit card.
