Beginners 2 Day Weekend Workshop

Start Date - 8 Feb 2020
End Date - 9 Feb 2020

Transforming a sheet of silver into a piece of jewellery can be a fulfilling and exciting creative process. This intensive two day course will introduce you to the traditional techniques and tools used to make jewellery. The aim of this course, using demonstrations and structured guidance is to instill confidence as you learn techniques such as sawing, soldering, annealing, filing, texturing and shaping to create a piece of silver jewellery during the course and when you continue making afterwards.

You will start by using copper (which has similar working properties to silver) to practice on, then progress to using silver for your final piece. This course is an ideal introduction if you are taking your first steps in jewellery making or suitable for returning students looking to refresh their existing knowledge to create more complex pieces. Copper, an amount of sheet silver and all tools will be provided. Extra silver can be purchased at cost during the course if needed. The weekend is designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing you to build your skills as well as create a finished piece.

This course does not include stone setting techniques but is a good building block for learning the techniques you will need to progress to the more advanced techniques of stone setting.

Please bring along glasses if you need them and wear appropriate clothing for a studio environment including closed toe shoes. If you have long hair please wear it up.

9:30-4:30 each day with a break for lunch. Lunch is not provided but you can bring a lunch to eat in the studio or we can advise you of nearby places to buy a lunch. Refreshments provided.

**Please note: classes may be cancelled due to lack of attendees. In the unlikely event, you will be fully refunded and notified the day before the class is scheduled**

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Beginners Two Day Silver Jewellery Weekend Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
