Silversmithing

Silversmithing

  • 11 August 2018 3:30pm

Led by our informative tutors, Laura and Naim, this course will teach you all the basic techniques of silversmithing, and because we keep numbers small there is time to explore a range of techniques for those that want to. From sawing, filing, texturing with hammers and drill, soldering with a blow torch, and polishing and finishing you’ll learn skills for the future whilst making something beautiful to take away.

We accept multi-levels on the course, so if you have done silversmithing before, either with us or someone else, feel free to come and expand your knowledge. You’ll make items of your choosing rather than following a set plan to give you the flexibility to make this day personal to you.



All materials included.

Suitable for beginners and experienced

You will be given an inch square piece of silver as well as unlimited brass and copper. More silver can be purchased on the day.
