Event description

Description

This weekly workshop will cover the traditional silversmithing techniques needed to design and create your own unique sterling silver jewellery. Attending regular weekly sessions will allow you the time to not only put these skills into practise, but to develop them further by working on a number of jewellery pieces during the course, and having the opportunity to embark on more advanced projects. No experience is necessary to take part.

You will initially be taken step-by-step through the process from the design of your jewellery to the finished piece by Lowri, an experienced jeweller. You will be shown the key techniques of hand-sawing, filing, drilling, doming and soldering, together with decorative finishes such as matt, hammered and reticulated to make your finished items of jewellery unique to you.

Following this you will be working on your own ideas and designs under the close supervision and guidance of Lowri, who will be on hand to offer advice and assistance wherever needed. During the weekly sessions you will be able to learn other silversmithing techniques as and when required by your designs.

Working in a small group will ensure everyone gets the individual attention they need to get the most out of this exciting hands-on workshop.

Course dates (All Tuesdays) :- July 23rd, 30th // August 6th, 13th & 20th

Cost of materials : The price does not include the cost of materials. All the sterling silver required to make your jewellery can be bought at the workshops. Approximately £15-£20 of silver will make a pendant, pair of earrings and a silver ring.

Please note : Please wear old clothes, and for health and safety no open toe shoes and long hair to be tied back.

Refunds : Refunds cannot be given for individual days you are unable to attend, although we will always try to find an alternative session you can come to.

Parking : Parking for the evening workshops is within the courtyard itself outside my studio. Please request details of access if required.

Any questions you may have beforehand please do not hesitate to contact me - mobile 07970 850615 or email susan@susanhill.co.uk.

I hope you enjoy your workshop!
