Saw piercing, drilling and filing

Annealing, soldering and forming

Texturing and polishing techniques

Bezel setting

What's included

All the equipment and materials you need are provided. We'll start working in copper for practice purposes and move through to a beautiful sterling silver bezel set ring or pendant as a final project. Tea / Coffee and biscuits provided. We break for an hour for lunch between 12.30 and 1.30 each day.

What shall I bring?
