This new August date has just been slotted into the programme (in mid July), following demand and the tutor having unexpected availability. Currently there is the max of 7 places available. Note: we will be continuing with the same Covid precautions we’ve had in place since April 2021, including mask wearing when not at desks. This will apply to all our courses, at least into the autumn of 2021. Design & make 'three Silver rings' with Sterling Silver and Semi-Precious Stones with Melinda Scarborough. This course is followed by a 2 day Silver Jewellery course
Your experienced professional tutor, Melinda, will guide you through the process of designing your rings and show you how to use the workshop tools with systematic demonstrations.
The new camera and screen system will be used these demos, whilst students remain safely at their desks.
Once ready to start you will cut out your silver using a saw frame (each student has their own) and then shape the pieces to add texture and interest.
You will learn the basic techniques of soldering, surface textures and how to get a nice professional finish to ensure that your three rings will sit together well if required.
This is quite an intensive day, but by the end of it you will be able to leave with a set of 3 different rings that you yourself have designed and made.
The material cost is £15 and the tutor will have more materials to buy if necessary.
This course is suitable for both beginners and intermediate. Each student will sit at their own desk spaced well apart.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
