About the Course
Jewellery Workshops | Silver Jewellery Making with Alana Peden
These classes are led by a local jeweller who has been teaching her practice across Scotland for 5 years. Alana comes from a background of textiles and ceramics and graduated with first class honors in Jewellery and metal design at DJCAD, before setting up her own jewellery business at East Nook Studio, in St Andrews.
These workshops are for beginners and returners. The price includes silver and materials. Come along and learn how to saw, solder, form and texture your own silver jewellery from scratch! Use both traditional and modern techniques to create your own designs or recreate from the examples.
