Silversmithing Basics - Sheet Metal


Satuday 13th May 2017, 10 - 4.30

Full day silversmithing workshop 'Working with Sheet Metal'

£75 Price includes all materials and refreshments.

Learn basic silversmithing skills and create a simple pendant and earrings or cufflinks or maybe even a brooch.

Through the course of the day you’ll learn the basics of how to work with sheet metal, including cutting out, shaping, texturing and simple forming of the metal, how to solder and then finish your piece. You'll start with a practise piece in copper and then create your own designs in silver or a combination of the two. Some basic jewellery making skills are helpful but not necessary.

Your tutor Anna, is at hand to help you develop your design if needed. You’ll be working in copper and an allocated amount of silver to create your final piece.

This is part of a pair of workshops. To give you a full introduction to silversmithing we recommend you also book on our Silversmithing Basics One Day workshop - 'Working with Wire' on Saturday 22nd April 2017 (price £70).

Book both workshops now for £130, saving you £15.

This is an intensive course and so places are limited to 5 people.

Tutor: Anna Roebuck
