A fabulous opportunity to try your hand at silversmithing. In this full day of silversmithing, you will spend the first part looking at different techniques.
Measuring for a ring, sizing, sawing, filing, soldering, shaping and forming, pickle and polishing. By the end of the workshop, you will have several finished pieces of jewellery to wear & enjoy.
You will work in copper first. Next you can try hand stamping so that a message can be written or patterning can be created.
In the full day you will have enough silver to complete one of the following:
- A set of stacking rings
- A spinning ring
- A couple of bangles
Depending on the time you may also have time to make a pair of earrings.
You will float out of the tent with at least two solid silver items to take away.
If you are Speedy Gonzales and have any time left, you are more than welcome to make additional items should there be time. We simply ask for the cost of any additional silver needed.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
But don't forget you will need to squeeze in slices of all our delicious freshly baked cakes as well as our homemade lunch. Teas, cold drinks and coffee from our wonderful bean to cup coffee machine are available all day, and maybe a little glass of bubbly before you leave us for the day.
6 hours (9:30am to 3:30pm)

A very enjoyable afternoon. Melinda and Emma were so welcoming, the venue was delightful, Caroline from Craven&White did a great job guiding us through the stages of silver ring and bangle making, and tea, coffee, cake and bubbly further enhanced the hugely enjoyable experience. With a gorgeous silver bangle and matching ring to take home, I will definitely be back for more!
