Create individual jewellery and designs. Develop your ideas through drawing, and be guided to realise your jewellery in three-dimensions. Techniques are demonstrated according to your needs.
Please note: if you would like to make small silver items, you should book onto a one-day silversmithing workshop (found in the short course metalworking category).
Your experience and the complexity of your idea will determine what you can achieve on a one-day workshop. Please discuss your idea with the tutor prior to the course by emailing the bookings office at: [email protected]
If you are a complete beginner and you have not made any silver jewellery before, it is advised that you attend a beginner’s jewellery day before attending this workshop where you will be guided through a set project to introduce the basic techniques of working with silver.
