Introduction to Jewellery Making & Silversmithing

Introduction to Jewellery Making & Silversmithing


This is a rolling programme which runs every Wednesday evening 6.30pm - 9.00pm. 


The course fee covers 10 weeks and once started is closed.  Places will open again for the start of a new 10 week session.


The fees cover use of workshop and all tools, working with an experienced jewellery designer & maker to assist you with a project of your choosing.


The course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience.


On this course you will learn how to design and make your own unique pieces of jewellery in sterling silver. You will be taught a range of traditional jewellery making skills and techniques including:

  •  Saw piercing
  • Filing
  • Soldering
  • Polishing
  • Texturing
  • Forming
  • Enamelling


If you are unsure where to begin or what type of project to undertake - help will be given with some basic tasks to familiarise you with various tools and techniques - this usually helps guide a person towards what they would like to do.


On completing the course you will have gained confidence in basic bench skills.


Those who go on to a subsequent 10 weeks will continue to improve their skills and try their hand at further techniques such as:

  • Sand Casting
  • Reticulation
  • Riveting
  • Direct Casting
  • Stone setting
  • Silver Clay


You will then have the opportunity to incorporate these processes into your own designs. You will be encouraged to work independently on your own projects with tutor support and guidance available.


The workshop is fully equipped with free on-site parking.  There is also plenty of tea/coffee and biscuits available.


As each person can choose their own project, the material usage will vary.  Therefore, the cost of materials is not included in the course price.  

I keep a stock of silver, gold, silver clay and gemstones which will be available for purchase at cost price.  Alternatively, I can make purchases for your needs - again any materials will be charged at cost price.
