Description

This is a one day workshop for one person. On the Silver Jewellery taster day you will be able to get a feel what it is like to work with silver if it is your first time. Learning to solder, how to shape form and finish jewellery. We will use silver sheet and wire to form shapes for pendants, bangles and rings or whatever you would like to make! (Within reason!) I am also really happy to teach intermediate students who would like to try new techniques on the day, so there are plenty of options. By the end of the day, you will have a finished piece of jewellery to wear and enjoy. The cost of materials will be approximately £20 paid to the Lecturer. There is a 1hour lunchbreak. Please bring your own, or there are a couple of really good cafes nearby.

What's included in the price?

All tools will be provided, along with a limited amount of silver to practice on (we will discuss what you would like to make before the course date, and there will be an extra charge, depending on what you would like to make). Accommodation nearby can be provided at an extra cost.

5 hours (10:30am to 4:00pm)

Maker


I have worked as a jewellery designer and maker for over twenty five years now and as a tutor for around fifteen. My jewellery is inspired by many sources the natural coastal environment in which I live and also by pattern and design that catches my eye. I have worked in trade workshops and studied gemmology which I find really interesting. Now based on Portland, I teach 1:1 classes tailoring classes to individuals needs and small groups of up to six students which run on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Also Wednesday and Thursday evenings. I teach an intermediate class on Fridays.
