One Day Silver Jewellery Making Workshop

This one-day intensive jewellery making course is a great introduction if you’d like to see if you enjoy working with metal. Suitable for absolute beginners, we’ve kept the class small and limited to 6 students, so you get the attention you deserve. You’ll learn the techniques of traditional jewellery making, such as annealing, pickling, cutting, forming, cold joining, jump ring making, and texturing, and walk away with a beautiful sterling silver pendant or earrings.

These classes are super fun and whilst everyone learns the same skills, you all come up with a different outcome at the end of the day - the wonder of creativity! Don't worry if you think you don't have a creative bone in your body. You do. And I'll help you find it!

Experiment and sample with copper or brass before using these new skills to make a sterling silver piece of jewellery. Students can work from a basic template that can be modified to reflect their own creative style or bring their own design ideas.What you’ll learn:
Metal Cutting – How to cut metal using professional jewellery saw frames and blades.
Texturing and stamping – you’ll have fun learning a couple of ways to texture your jewellery, or stamp with letters
Annealing – You’ll learn how to anneal your metal for rolling and texturing
Cold joining – how to join different materials together
Finishing – learn how to file and emery your jewellery to bring it to your desired finish
Patination – A special blackening compound can be used to highlight areas of your design on your jewellery

ALL TOOLS, MATERIALS and SILVER, COPPER and BRASS PROVIDED.
