About the Course
Have you ever wanted to make a piece of your own jewellery? Do you want to gift a beautiful piece of sterling silver jewellery to someone close to you? Or do you just want to learn a new skill? Join me in my workshop in the heart of the Kent countryside for a one-to-one tuition jewellery making workshop day, and I’ll help you create something completely personal to take home at the end of the day.
You will learn some basic and traditional silversmithing techniques including forming, cutting, piercing and reticulation, and leave at the end of the day with your own leaf pendant or earrings.
My workshop days make an ideal birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift, so why not treat someone special? They’ll get a wonderful opportunity to learn a new skill while making a personally designed and handmade item of jewellery.

What's included in the price?
Workshop days run from 10am to 4pm and I’ll provide refreshments and a light lunch. Also included is the silver to make your piece.
You’ll leave at the end of the day with a silver leaf pendant or earrings, made by you!
My one to one workshop with Sara, trying my hand at silversmithing was a totally satisfying and enjoyable day. The studio is well equipped, and organised and I tried several interesting techniques with Sara’s experienced guidance. She is an excellent teacher, relaxed yet purposeful and was very open to helping me achieve a piece of my own design. I was so pleased with the pendant I made, would love to go again and thoroughly recommend it.

My daughter and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Sara is an excellent tutor, both informative and attentive. It was a lovely opportunity to try a variety of techniques and we would definitely recommend the workshop.

What a treat. I was a little nervous going on my own but had a fabulous day. Sara is really welcoming and the one to one tutoring is excellent. It’s harded than you think so it was great to learn new skills and make a unique piece of jewellery; when people admire it I can say I made it.
Sara’s workshop and gardens are so pretty and relaxing and it was a pleasure to meet Misty the dog.
I would really recommend this day out a real treat.

There's magic at the bottom of this lady's garden. Spent a very enjoyable and productive day with the incredible Silver Designed Personally. I have always wanted to make a pair of my own earrings and the teacher was so helpful and inspiring. Lovely setting too! Great 'sandwich' lunch and supply of green tea. Would recommend this experience as a unique and creative day!

I had a great time at the silver leaf jewellery making day with Sara, so wanted to post a review! If you enjoy making things and want to try something different this is perfect for you. Sara took me through all the steps and let me try all sorts of tools (flame torch was a favourite for me!). The day was very insightful, fun and I came away with a beautiful leaf pendant. Sara is an awesome tutor who is really friendly and encouraging and I can't not mention her workshop and garden which are absolutely gorgeous!

As I had such a great service with a bespoke trinket box from Sara, decided to treat myself to one of her workshop days.
As a complete novice and not used to using tools I was a little sceptical that I could make a wearable piece of silver jewellery in only one day.
I needn’t have worried, Sara was so patient and helpful, the day was a delight and I came away with a beautiful pair of leaf earrings that were all my own work.
One to one tuition was superb, no waiting for help. Sara is a delight and easy to talk to, she made me very welcome and at ease.
Such a great experience, I will be buying a couple of gift vouchers as Christmas presents for special friends.

I attended the Silver Designed Personally Workshop a few weeks ago and it was an excellent experience. I was impressed by the location of the studio as it is a truly magical setting. Also, all the equipment is brand new which is a lovely environment to learn in. The teacher is very patient, friendly and knowledgeable. This is more than a class, I would recommend this experience for anyone who has an interest in jewellery making but also to anyone who is looking for a fun day outside of London in a magical environment.
