About the Course
This course is great for beginners to learn some basic silver-working techniques, and you will go away with a solid silver bangle and a copper bangle that you have made! It is run by Fiona Cocks BA(Hons) who is has been teaching classes for over 10 years. She is enthusiastic and fun. The 4 hour session takes place in the workshops of Bigbury Mint, which is in Ermington, near Ivybridge, in the heart of the South Hams area of Devon.

Thoroughly enjoyed this bangle making workshop on Saturday with a group of friends. Such a lovely thing to do - and you don’t have to be particularly creative! With some guidance from the lovely Fi, I was able to produce two bespoke bangles - one copper and one silver. I’m going to keep the copper one for myself and give the silver one as a gift. Such a therapeutic activity and a sense of accomplishment at the end. I shall be returning to make some earrings and a ring and will be buying vouchers for gifts for friends because it’s such a lovely experience. Thank you!

Response from Bigbury Mint:Hi Julie,
Just finished this course today. Great instruction by Fiona and I have ended up with 2 bangles that look fantastic. She guided our group through each technical step with clear instructions and a demonstration. I can’t wait to try out one of the other courses.

Response from Bigbury Mint:Hi Pam,
Did this course with a group of friends and we're off out tonight with our new bangles on! I'm a total beginner and found it all really well explained, not scary, great fun. There is a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of help and guidance. We are all thinking about doing one of the other courses together now!!
