About the Course
Lonely Ape Workshop classes are a great introduction for any keen crafters interested in Silversmithing. In the textured jewellery workshops you will learn skills such as annealing, soldering, hammering, filing and finishing.
You will be able to choose between making earrings, a ring or a pendant in the class and will be tutored through the whole process from start to finish.
You will be able to choose different thicknesses of silver wire and strip silver depending on the style you want to create; we will then spend time exploring different ways to create marks and surface textures using a variety of files and hammers.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Your handmade piece of jewellery along with homemade cakes and refreshments.
What a lovely afternoon!
I attended a Lonely Ape Textured Bangle workshop this afternoon with a friend and cannot recommend Katherine highly enough. She was extremely patient and is obviously very talented. I can't believe that I managed to make a beautiful bangle with her help and I will be proud to wear it.
The workshop was really lovely, set in a beautiful garden and we were even given homemade cake to have with our cup of tea.
I thought it was excellent value and a great way to spend an afternoon plus you come away with a gorgeous bracelet!
Thank you so much! I look forward to doing another workshop :-)

My sister in law and I recently did the textured jewellery workshop with Lonely Ape, and it was so much fun! Very authentic workshop, great tuition - it was only us two so it meant Katherine could really spend time showing us all the different techniques and tools. We both made rings, I made a hammered pinky ring and Lauren made a ring for her thumb. Tea and homemade cake was provided which was a nice touch!
