An introduction to silver jewellery making

Monday 10 July

Excluding 3/10/31 July

I run another beginner class on Weds 1 -3pm (14th June – 23rd Aug excluding 5/12 July and 2 Aug) with the same details.

This course will introduce basic silver jewellery making techniques to the complete beginner. You will be taught new skills using copper and silver such as sawing, filing, soldering, roll printing and finishing metals. You will also be shown how to make a simple bezel setting for a cabochon stone. You will initially work as a group then you will have one to one guidance enabling you to confidently create your own piece of jewellery such as a ring, pendant, earrings or bracelet.

There is no need to buy anything in advance, however you will need to purchase materials for your own project. This will be discussed during the class.
