There are 3 set classes to choose from
Ring in a Day
Pendants & Earrings
Bracelets & Bangles
I also run an open class where you can make any of the above . . . or something completely different.
Classes cost just £85 for a day, including materials and payment is taken upon booking to confirm your place.
In each of the classes you will be introduced to the basic techniques of working with silver and making jewellery, including:
Cutting and filing (with piercing saw and files) - Metal forming using hammers and pliers - Soldering - Surface manipulation (texturing & decoration) - Using findings - Finishing and polishing
Your material allowance for any of the classes is £18 per student and is included within the total price of the class. If the item you wish to make uses more silver than this it will be charged in addition, to be paid on the day, at the going price.
Basic Outline of the Day (10.00 am - 6.00 pm)
· Health and safety briefing
· Introduction to the workshop and tools
· Demonstration & practise of basic techniques
· Design ideas and prototypes
· Making of final piece using learnt techniques
· Finishing and polishing
At the end of the day you will take away an original, handmade piece of jewellery to be treasured forever. There is a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and class sizes are kept small so that teaching can be adapted to suit the needs and pace of each student. Free tea and coffee making facilities are available in the workshop.
