Dandelion Silver are artisan jewellers and silversmiths, we love making the quirky and unusual and sell our pieces online and at some of the larger artisan markets. During the summer months we can also be found at a number of festivals. Last year I was asked to run a jewellery making course, these courses have become so popular they now run most weeks. So if you have a passion to learn a new skill or want to make a gift for someone special we can help you.
"What a fantastic, patient, professional tutor! Mark created a totally bespoke day to help me explore all the techniques I wanted to learn and more. This is more than your average beginner day. I came away with a lovely ring and pendant and more importantly, skills and knowledge to inspire my learning journey. Mark’s workshop is a professional set up and a relaxing Haven from the outside world, with all the tools you could need. Top Tip! Check your directions don’t just rely on Sat Nav as it’s in a real beautiful spot with little reception. (Or find a local postie to direct you like I did). A perfect creative retreat for a fab day. "
"I really enjoyed the course, fantastic set up in Mark's studio with all the equipment and more you need to make great quality jewellery. Very well taught, I’d never made any jewellery before and Mark helped me make beautiful wearable items to be proud of; it’s given me the bug to craft more!"
"Loved it!!! 16 year old son, wife and father in law all happy - me too - brilliant! Our different ages, as well as capabilities were wonderfully catered for. We all wanted to make very different stuff and this was catered for too.The time flew by... We want to book another session. I highly recommend this workshop"
"Me and my mum went on this course today for a treat and had a great time! We started off making our own rings with Mark's guidance before starting our own projects. The quality of the finish we were able to achieve is beautiful. I made a lovely pair of leaf drop earrings (which I'm wearing now!) and my mum made a pretty bangle with a charm - she's always struggled to find one that fits as her wrists are so small but now she's got one made to measure. Mark and Terri were really patient, friendly and welcoming and we would definitely recommend a trip to them for this course!"
