What you'll do
During the workshop experience you will learn traditional craftsmanship, jewellery skills and techniques in small groups in a relaxed atmosphere. You'll be welcomed into my home, where the sterling silver ring making workshop will take place. There will be a short health and safety induction session before we take a look at the tools and what you will be making. I will model each stage of the process and will be on hand to support you through the creative journey...but, your pieces of sterling silver jewellery will be made entirely by you! You will learn to size your finger, measure out silver, cut, file and shape the metal before moving on to soldering, texturing and polishing. Eco silver, use of tools and break-time refreshment are included in the price and your pieces of jewellery will go home with you. Although designed for beginners, all are welcome to come and get creative with silver. The workshop will last approximately 3 hours, with us taking a break in the middle for a traditional Cornish treat. If you can't find a day or time that fits in with your plans, just get in touch as I am happy to change the workshop calendar to suit you!
I am a jewellery designer and maker, working predominantly with eco silver. I started learning this craft in 2015. What started out as a hobby, quickly became all consuming as I took classes, built up my own workshop and started selling my designs in the time since. My previous career as primary school teacher made it a natural progression to teach family and friends...and now I'm thrilled to be teaching you! Forever on learning journey to master new skills myself I will show you the basic techniques you need to make beautiful jewellery yourself. I currently run three different Airbnb Workshop Experiences. If a different date, time or Experience suits you better just get in touch as I can make arrangements to suit you.
