A chance for avid beach combers and sea glass hoarders to make their finds into wearable treasure.
Time: 11am - 4.00pm
In this workshop you will learn to set a piece of sea glass, a pebble or some sea ceramics into silver to make a charm or a pendant.
We will spend the day making a silver collet (cup) for your sea glass to sit in, finishing by soldering a bail onto your collet to create your pendant or charm and finishing and polishing your piece to a high standard.
Classes will be kept to four people to allow for the more detailed tuition needed for this course.
Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
This class is ideal for someone who has a bit of basic jewellery making knowledge.
If you would like to add your sea glass collet to a ring, cuff or bangle, I suggest coming to make that piece of jewellery in one of the all day silver workshops first to give us plenty of time to concentrate on your setting.
Silver is on top of the workshop day price and will need to be paid for on the day. This can range from £8 - £65 depending on what you make.
Ideal for beginners or those wanting to improve their skills.

What a wonderful day! Five of us spent the day with Rose in her beautiful and fully equipped workshop. Rose with skill, humour and experience, guided each of us through the process, from start to finish, enabling us to work with independence, but knowing when to offer support and guidance. We all came home having proudly each made a ring, pendant or a pair of earrings. She had thought of everything to make the day enjoyable and comfortable, from sweets on the workbenches, tea, coffee and biscuits whenever you wanted and a break for lunch in her lovely dining room. Thank you, Rose, for giving us such a fun day and for helping to create something,which will always remind us of such a happy occasion.
I attended Rose's all day silver jewellery making course with my Mum and Aunt - and we all loved it. My Mum and I had a CraftCourses gift voucher and we couldn't think of a better present: spending time together and making beautiful jewellery, to our very specific designs. We all came away with beautiful pieces of jewellery - I was surprised how much I managed to make under Rose's friendly and helpful tuition. We are already planning on coming back in the new year, with my sisters and cousin too!
A fantastic day making a keepsake ring for me, earring presents and a silver cuff bracelet for Alan for whom the course was a 40th birthday present. Rose, you’re a fabulous teacher. We loved it so much were hoping to come back for the 7 week course in Feb. Thank you for a memorable day Rose. Very highly recommended.
The all day silver jewellery workshop was fantastic. There was enough time to be creative and to realise my ideas, with excellent guidance by Rose Wood. The environment was really lovely, with a beautifully designed studio space in a lovely place whith all the tools you could need. I learned a lot of silver working skills to make a pendant for the first time. The whole experience was great but mostly it was all down to excellent tutoring by Rose Wood.
I did roses jewellery workshop and it was great! Beautiful workshop and she's an exlelent teacher. I made a lovely silver pendant which I love. Rose was very good at talking me through every step and was very knowledgable on the processes. I would recommend this class to everyone.
Rose is a patient and immensely knowledgable teacher. She mixes skill with fun in her classes and the end results are always amazingly beautiful. My husband made my engagement ring and we then made our wedding rings together. This unique experience is a memory I will always treasure and am so greatful to Rose! I would always highly recommend anything she does - thank you Rose.
Rose is a brilliant teacher and talented jewellery maker. I have been to her workshop on 2 occasions, the first to make a silver ring and the second to work one-on-one making a pair of silver ear rings. In both instances Rose managed to guide my making of jewellery pieces which I will always wear and treasure and also managed to allow me to feel a sense of independence and personal accomplishment! I would recommend both the jewellery Rose creates and these courses to everyone, she is wonderful.
I went to Rose's workshop to make a necklace for my girlfriend, (For our 5 years anniversary).
And it was fantastic. I had such a great time, making my design a reality.
Rose teaching approach is really friendly and professional.
The end result was way better than I expected, The necklace looks amazing, and my girlfriend Love it!
