Learn all the traditional silversmithing and forging techniques you need to create stunning sterling silver bangles!
Choose from a classic hammered bangle, a thinner wavy design or a twisted ribbon bangle - or maybe one of each, the choice is yours! This workshop is perfect for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. You will have time to make at least two bangles.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need.

Materials (sterling silver wire) are available for purchase on the day. The exact cost of the materials will be determined by the size and therefore weight of the bangle you make and the price of silver on the day, however material costs for an average hammered bangle is approximately £20. Twisted Ribbon and Wavy bangles use less silver.

I booked the course for my mum and myself as a birthday present. We both had a great time and were really pleased with the bangles we made. Jo was so friendly and knowledgeable and we would definitely recommend this course.
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you so much for coming Steph, and for your lovely review! You both made beautiful bangles! I hope you've had lots of compliments about them.
Really enjoyed the day. Made 2 bangles and gained a lot of knowledge as eell as skills. Have worked with silver clay but this is very different. Quite a workout using a hammer! Would recommend for anyone looking to learn and gain new skills and confidence.
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you Diane! It was lovely to have you in the studio!
