Silversmithing Hobby Classes: the perfect way to get your weekly dose of creative time-out
Join us in our fully-equipped jeweller’s workshop to make your own silver jewellery. Learn the basic techniques of the silversmith to express your ideas and tap into your creativity in a very unique, hands-on and practical way. All weekly classes are self-propelled (you design your own projects) and tuition is tailored accordingly. Selected classes incorporate a short mindfulness and feedback component to enhance your experience in the workshop. Adults of all ages and all levels of experience welcome. If weekly classes sound too daunting, join one of our once-off beginner’s workshops – specially designed for complete beginners and a great way to dip your toes in!
Techniques on offer: smelting, rolling, piercing, polishing, annealing, forging, soldering, stone-setting, roll-printing, etching, cuttlefish casting and more.
Use these techniques to make earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces.. or even spoons, decorative mobiles and silver salt bowls.
“I work in my head on a computer all week. The three hours I spend with Erin and the class are creative, guided and stimulating, and help reconnect my head, heart and hands.“Andy
“This is a wonderfully creative activity in a warm and welcoming studio. Erin is a patient and effective teacher who delights as much as her pupils in their progress.“Jess
