A 2 hour weekly jewellery lesson. Includes all tools and materials.
As a qualified teacher I teach the basics such as sawing, filing, annealing and 2 types of soldering, including the correct use of easy, medium and hard solders.
You also learn how to correctly ring size and we also cover techniques such as stamping, patination, and reticulation.
Other techniques that may be included, if time allows, are drop casting and rivets.
You will learn how to make a silver ring and you will also learn how to make a bezel setting for a ring or pendant. From these skills you can progress on to designing and making your own jewellery and be successful at silversmithing.
Set in a private woodland, the studio is next to my home.
The 6 week course tools include a free bezel set.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
