New ways to try silversmithing for the first time
We know that some of you would like to learn about making silver jewellery but aren’t ready to commit to a full-day workshop. And others of you have asked about soldering in our silver taster classes.
So we have added to our range of silver jewellery tasters to provide more options with the introduction of a session on making stacked soldered silver rings and one on making a pair of silver earrings.
In the Stacked Silver Ring Taster students will make a set of five soldered rings using silver wire. This will include making the rings to size and shaping rings. This is a good choice for someone who has taken one of our other silver tasters and who would now like to learn a little about soldering.
In Make a Pair of Silver Earrings students will learn to texture silver and cut the metal to shape using a template to ensure both earring match as well as drilling the holes and using polishing and finishing techniques.
These classes join the Make a Silver Ring (making a textured wrap around ring), Handstamped Silver, Silver Charm and Silver Cufflinks taster classes to give you lots of opportunities to try out silver techniques and make different pieces in short classes. And if you sign up for our taster package, you can take four taster classes for the bargain price of £150 for the lot – for example both rings classes, handstamping and the earring class would teach you a variety of techniques with four finished projects to take home.
