About the Course
You can either enroll on:
- Silver Ring workshop (£60),
- Silver Earrings workshop (£60),
- Silver Pendant workshop (£75),
- Silver Bangle workshop (£85).
The day will introduce students to the basic techniques of jewellery making using sterling silver. All the techniques will be taught as a group and you will be fully supported in the making of the piece you have chosen to make.
You will learn how to create either a ring, a pendant (a silver chain is included), a pair of dangling or stud earrings, or a bangle to your own design - and you will make test pieces and try with all the different tools before starting on the final piece.
You will be introduced to the skills of sawing, filing, soldering, texturing and polishing and will go home with a finished piece of silver jewellery!
This course is suitable for anyone who would like to learn the basics of jewellery making using Sterling Silver. You will have full instruction of all techniques and will work in a relaxed and fun environment.

What's included in the price?
Sterling silver is included in the course fee - as well as copper sheets for test pieces. If you work particularly quickly and you need extra silver, this will be provided to you at cost price.
Please bring along: a pencil, note pad, apron or clothes you don’t mind getting messy, closed toe shoes, glasses for close work if you usually wear them, small plastic box for your materials kit (an empty food container will be perfect) and a hair band if you have long hair.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will provided and you can bring your packed lunch.
My mother and I did this on the spur of a moment one Saturday.
We had the best time, it was so hands on, Marion was lovely and very approachable.
She explained everything wonderfully and we got to practise and try out things on copper before committing to a design or a way of doing things. It was a perfect morning activity, it does take a number of hours and is quite intense. You get to use all the tools and Marion is there to support you the whole way.
The only advice I would give would be make it bigger than you think, Mum and I made Rings and made them too small, only thanks to Marion's expertise were we able to get them to fit.
I would do this again in a heart beat, and even consider for a mothers day gift, girls day out, hen do, anything where you want to do something with a take away at the end!
