About the workshop

Fancy having a go at silversmithing and trying something new? This is the course for you. Starting with the basics you'll soon develop a taste for working in metal. With 8 weeks of 3 hour long sessions you'll be guided through various techniques and also be allowed plenty of time to practice what you're learning and really get the hang of things.

Who is it for?

Beginners onwards. Please note that a good level of dexterity and eyesight is required. Over 16s with accompanying adult.

What will I learn?

We'll work on various projects to allow you to learn the following skills:

Saw piercing, drilling and filing

Annealing, soldering and heat treating techniques

Using a rolling mill to texture metal, roll wire and sheet

Polishing methods

Jump ring , chain and clasp making

Doming and anticlastic raising


Making and sizing a ring band

Forming a bezel setting for a cabochon stone

What's included

All the equipment and materials you need are provided as well as tea, coffee and biscuits. We'll start working in copper for 2 of our practice pieces then move through to working in silver for our final 2 projects including a pair of roll printed earrings and a beautiful sterling silver bezel set ring.

What shall I bring?

Reading glasses if you use them, it's very good to be able to see! Also to keep you safe it's best to wear closed toed shoes, tie long hair back and avoid loose flappy clothes :)
