Silver jewellery making workshops
Have you ever wanted to make your own piece of silver jewellery? Or are you looking for a gift experience for someone who loves jewellery? My one day silver jewellery making workshops will be an introduction to making jewellery using traditional tools and techniques in the tranquil setting of my garden workshop.
The day is totally tailored to you and your jewellery making experience will begin before you even step foot in the workshop! I will be in contact beforehand to chat and discuss your designs and ideas so you can make the most of your day. The day will start at 9.00am with a cuppa and workshop orientation; familiarising yourself with the tools and materials. Then you will crack on with making your jewellery by learning techniques such as sawing, filing, drilling, annealing, soldering and polishing. I will be on hand to offer advice and guidance and will demonstrate each part of the jewellery making process. We will break for a healthy lunch to keep the energy levels up for the afternoon until we finish at 4.30pm. I guarantee that you will feel satisfied and rewarded for creating your own pieces of jewellery and also relaxed with easy going chat and Radio 2!
What’s included in the price
The workshop is £130. This fee includes all metals*and materials, one to one tuition by experienced jewellery maker, a minimum of two silver pieces to take home, lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Why not share the experience with a friend? For two people the cost will be £230. Minimum age of participants is 18 unless accompanied by an adult. * There will be an extra cost for metal over 25g.
Make your own wedding rings
The build-up of any wedding can prove stressful and over-whelming so why not take some time out and spend the day together in a relaxing environment making your own wedding rings? You will be able to work in silver and gold. For platinum you would make the rings in silver and then they would be sent to a casting company to make an exact copy. Lunch will be provided as usual and photos taken throughout the day to remind you of a wonderful experience. Price will vary according to metal chosen so please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Half day workshops
If you can’t manage a full day but would like a taster into making jewellery; my half day workshops would be perfect for you. Spend 3.5 hours (in the morning or afternoon) concentrating on one piece of jewellery which you can show off to your mates saying “I made this!” Half day workshops cost £70. Refreshments included.
