Work with silver to make various pieces of jewellery, using traditional jewellery techniques. We use mainly copper and silver but you can also work in gold if you wish. We mainly make jewellery, but have also been known to make window decorations, Christmas decorations and even spoons and boxes!
Our classes are open to any level of experience, from complete beginners to experienced makers.
If you are a beginner, you will learn the basic skills of jewellery making, cutting, texturing, soldering. We usually start making a simple ring or a bangle before moving onto a pendant, but I am happy to be flexible around your own ideas!
The more advanced maker can either work on preset projects around your area of interest or you can set your own projects and I will help you to achieve your desired results. I am happy to support you on self directed projects, help you to design your own jewellery and even create a collection for sale.
We have a small but well equipped traditional jewellery workshop, housing a good variety of machines and hand tools. We can tackle most basic skills and also have a good selection of specialist tools.
Teaching is delivered by a qualified jewellery teacher with 20 years experience of working in the industry, 15 years teaching experience, a first class honours degree, and a teaching post graduate qualification.
The cost of each class is £20, costs on top are for your materials. All consumables (solder, chemicals, saw blades etc) are included in the course fee. For a beginner you can expect to pay about £5-10 on materials for a simple ring, £15-20 for a bangle, I would expect you to make a simple ring or bangle in 2/3 sessions pieces depending on what you choose to make and how complicated your designs.
It is entirely possible to work in copper or to deign pieces that are smaller and lighter to work to a budget, or make big and bold pieces as you wish! Materials can be bought from me directly. Everyone pays just for what they use.
Our courses can be purchased as a gift for someone else, it’s a great gift for someone who enjoys working with their hands, and doesn’t mind getting them dirty! The course is suitable for complete beginners or someone with previous experience
