Our Beginners course is a great introduction to working with sterling silver. This is very much a hands-on day, by the end of it you will probably feel exhausted but be going home with some gorgeous finished jewellery for yourself of as a gift which you have completed from start to finish.
We have a number of projects that you can choose from, each comes with detailed step-by-step instructions and help is always on hand from your fully trained tutor.
You will learn the basic skills of measuring your silver, cutting, filing, texturing, forming, soldering and polishing, using a variety of professional quality tools.
Group and individual tuition is available up to a maximum of four people. Those who have a little more experience or even confidence can work on their own projects with help from your tutor when and if needed.
For those with a little more experience or who have completed the beginners day you can design and work on your own project. Again, help is always on hand if needed.
The fee for the beginners course includes the cost of all the silver used on the day and to cover a maximum of three projects, further projects can be made at an additional cost if time allows.
