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 myself and Megan 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 we run other workshops where you can learn the art of wax carving which is my favourite way to create some really unique designs.
Sterling silver materials
The class will take place in our workshop space in The Factory Studios in Bournemouth. Fully equipped with traditional tools you will need to enjoy your silversmith experience
There is parking within the factory studios but it can be tricky to find so I will send you directions!
