About the Course
A three day, hands-on workshop with contemporary Silversmith, Ndidi Ekubia, from London. Participants will learn how to create their own unique cup from sheet metal using hand tools and traditional silversmithing techniques.
The course is suitable for all abilities - from beginners to those already working with silver. Numbers are kept small to allow the tutor to spend quality time with each individual. You work initially in copper, then move on to silver if you so desire.
The venue for the course is The Stables, the converted old stable block of nearby, Cromarty House. Peaceful and artistic rural surroundings with parking. Residential packages available. An engaging, inspiring and friendly course with stunning results.

What's included in the price?
All tools are included in the price, as is the copper you'll be working with initially. You can choose whether to stick with copper only, in which case the cost of the course comes down to £315 or graduate to silver, which means the total cost is £415.
We also provide tea, coffee, biscuits and a delicious, homemade lunch each day as part of the fee.
We can provide accommodation in our stunning building, The Old Brewery, also in Cromarty - check out our website for more info and images!
