Design & Make Sterling Silver Jewellery – 10 Week Course – April 2024

Have you ever dreamed of making your own jewellery designs? Well now you can!
Whether you're a complete beginner or have some prior jewellery-making experience and are looking to develop your skills - join us on our 10 week Design & Make Course and spend your Wednesday evenings with tutor Nadine learning how to create your own unique sterling silver jewellery.
We will begin by finding your source inspiration, and then move to developing your ideas with a sketchbook.  You will explore different design elements and learn technical skills through four mini projects, and then create a final piece of sterling silver jewellery which will be completely designed and made by you!
Price includes use of tools, base materials and an allocation of sterling silver for your pieces.
No experience is necessary and all skill levels (18+) are welcome.

Here's what you’ll learn:
    • How to develop designs.
    • How to use a piercing saw.
    • How to form metal wire.
    • How to dome and form metal.
    • How to anneal silver.
    • How to use the pickle bath.
    • How to solder and rivet silver.
    • How to texture metal using hammers, metal stamps and a rolling mill.
    • How to sand and finish edges.
    • How to finish and polish your pieces.
