About the Course
Four week introductory course in making silver jewellery. This course is designed for people with little or no experience of silver jewellery making or for those with jewellery making experience. Learn about basic tools, workshop practice and traditional jewellery techniques for working in silver.
For beginners in the first session you can expect to make and finish a simple band ring in the morning and go home after the first morning wearing a silver ring you have made yourself. Then you will move on learning to texture metals and cut out sheet silver to start to make a pendant or a pair of earrings in the second session. You can then choose what you make from a great range of set projects or follow your own ideas in the remaining sessions.
All tools are provided, silver will be charged at cost, for beginners following recommended set projects this will probably be around £20.00 - £25.00 for the course.
