This one day Jewellery course is an opportunity for you to be introduced to the very basics of silver jewellery making using silversmithing techniques to make a simple ring designed by yourself. Those with an understanding of the basic techniques having completed jewellery courses will be encouraged to make a more complex piece in consultation with the tutor. The course will teach you how to anneal, shape and decorate the silver, skills you can develop on further jewellery making courses.
The course fee includes £12 for the cost of silver. Additional silver can be purchased on the day if desired.
How will I be taught?
Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
Through one to one tuition, a group critique and self assessment.
What do I need to bring with me?
