When you arrive I will give you a quick tour of the workshop and get you an apron to get started on making your own piece of jewellery. You will learn how to measure, cut and texturise your silver before we solder the pieces of silver together. You will learn how to clean and prepare the silver ready for soldering and once soldered we will form our designs into shape using a hammer and mandrel finally pickling and polishing the jewellery ready to take home after your Experience
I started teaching silversmith workshops back in 2013 after training in Lincolnshire at Jewellery School Classes and setting up my own business with my designs, I now own a workshop in Bournemouth where you can come learn the skills and create pieces of jewellery of your own designs or one of mine! I specialise in sterling silver and gold, My workshop classes are really hands on and I will be there to guide you every step of the way whilst teaching you about the theory behind the metal works! As well as silver smithing you can learn the art of wax carving which is my favourite way to create some really unique designs.
The class will take place in our store and workshop in Factory Studios, Haviland Road Bournemouth. Fully equipped with traditional tools you will need to enjoy your silversmith experience
Our minimum age for workshops is 11 years old. We are accessible for wheelchair users however we do not have a disable toilet
