Silversmithing Club Fortnightly Mondays 7-9pm


Silversmithing Club and follow on sessions

This is a club for those with a basic understanding of silversmithing who've already attended one of our Basic jewellery courses or full day silversmithing workshops.

We have a full range of jewellery and silversmithing tools for you to use so you can practise and develop your own jewellery ideas and I've now introduced some tutored follow on sessions to help you develop your skills.

Regular fortnightly club,
This year I am going to put the price up to £12 per session, plus the price of silver etc, however if you want to book and pay for a block of 5 sessions it will be £50. (You can pay below or pay in cash and let me know the dates you want to attend). This is a self directed session where you can develop your existing skills; my role is there to give you support and guidance rather than teaching you totally new techniques.

Regular Silversmithing Club dates are:
14th, 28th January, 11th, 25th February, 11th, 25th March, 15th, 29th April
You can bring your own materials or buy silver, copper, brass from The Making House at cost price.

Follow on Silversmithing Sessions
In addition to this I've decided to add some follow on sessions on the alternate Mondays to allow beginners to develop their skills after our silversmithing basics course. These will be tutor led sessions and so will be £20 plus the cost of materials, unless otherwise stated. Whilst they're aimed at those of you who are new to the club, other regulars are welcome too. You need to book your place on these so I know how many people are coming.

The follow on sessions will be:
Monday 21st January: Basic Bangles
Monday 4th February: Simple band rings/stacker rings
Monday 18th Feb: Development Session (practise making rings/bangles and develop techniques further) £12
Monday 4th March: Bezel setting stones (cabachons). These could be attached to the rings you've made or you could incorporate the stone setting within a simple pendant/pair of earrings.
Monday 18th March: Development session (practise bezel setting or incorporate within new designs) £12
Monday 1st April: Keum Boo (a fantastic technique of applying fine gold sheet to silver)

Or block book all 6 follow on sessions for £100
