Whether you want to brush up on previous experience or are completely new you will leave this course having completed a project from start to finish. If you would like to try silversmithing I will guide you through making either a Scottish whiskey tumbler, a spoon or a round pill box. Or if you have a jewellery idea or design that you would like to make I will be able to help you achieve this. I have a fully kitted out workshop where you will be able to use the tools that you require to complete your project with me on hand to help you. The processes available are: -Forging (hammering) metal sheet to shape -Soldering and annealing -Milling -Chasing and Repousse -Stone setting -Polishing
Having trained as a silversmith apprentice for 8 years I set up my own business 7 years ago. I have completed commissions for clients around the world and exhibited work at The British Museum, Christies’ London, Colefax and Fowler, Masterpiece London and have work in the permanent collection at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. My work and workshop have been published in The Independent, The Evening Standard, Architectural Digest, The Telegraph and many others.
Biscuits and cake will be available throughout the day. For lunch there is a deli near by which we can walk to.
Fully equipped workshop with forges for heating and soldering metal, hammers, stakes and anvils, lathes, polishing machines,…
My workshop is in my home which is a converted Queen Anne Chapel located in the centre of a small Cotswold town.
Silversmithing is a pretty clean and safe practise, but do bring clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
