This taster class introduces beginners to basic traditional silver jewellery making techniques. It’s an ideal class to join if you have little to no silver jewellery making experience.
You will become familiar with a range of jewellery making tools to create your bangle such as a piercing saw and a polishing motor. You will create surface texture using a texturing hammer and learn how to solder using a jewellers torch.
On completion of the class you will have a basic understanding of working with silver and a beautiful sterling silver bangle ready to wear!
We run a very friendly and relaxed workshop, all our taster classes offer a gentle learning curve for beginners to start making silver jewellery and try something new. If you’re completely new to jewellery making and unsure if a beginner term might be too much of a time investment to find out if you enjoy working in silver, then a taster class is worth considering.
The silver to make one bangle is included in the cost of this course, (approximately £25 of silver). If you would like to make more than one bangle, time permitting, you may purchase additional silver from the jewellery school on the day of your class.
This class is suitable for all beginners. No previous experience in jewellery making is necessary to enrol on this course.
