Jewellery Classes

Overview

Our Silver Jewellery Workshops are suitable for beginners with no previous jewellery making experience and each participant will make a piece of silver jewellery to take home.

Other class options such as evening and afternoon sessions can be arranged on request and tailored to suit all abilities. These sessions may be suited to those who have taken part in a silver workshop and wish to expand their skills, along with receiving advice on the acquisition of tools and materials required for jewellery making.

All classes are tutored by Heather, an experienced goldsmith who has taught students of all abilities for more than 25 years. No prior experience is required as you will be shown all the skills you will need to make your jewellery.  Heather will be on hand to closely guide and supervise at all stages of the process.

Classes are limited to four participants, so that the pace can be adjusted to each individual student ensuring that they gain the maximum from the experience.

Important Notes for all Students:

Dress:  Wear comfortable clothes, for health and safety no open toe shoes and long hair must be tied back. Aprons are supplied.
