Silver Workshops

NEW DIXIE DOT WORKSHOP DATES! See below. LOCK DOWN UPDATE October 20 – Following postponement of all workshops during lock down I’ve now rearranged and held most of them, and added dates that anyone previously booked on can reserve. If you are still waiting, do let me know.

I have taken the following steps to ensure government health guidelines are adhered to: Workshops will be limited to 4-6 people (depending on size of room and facilities), I’ve bought more tools and equipment so that each student will have their own toolbox without the need to share with others. Some soldering equipment will have to be shared but alcohol wipes and gloves are provided to wear. Facemasks, gloves and in some cases face shields will be available. Students will work on their own table, set at a minimum of 1.5 metres apart. Demonstrations will take part at a distance. Hand washing facilities will be nearby and encouraged. I hope this will allay any fears for you.

Here are NHS guidelines for social distancing:

WMM Silver workshops are an ideal opportunity for you to take time out from your busy lives and explore making sterling silver jewellery for yourself.  I run regular classes and one-off silver jewellery workshops around the country.  Silver jewellery workshops are suitable for individuals, for couples to make wedding rings and/or for  groups of friends celebrating a birthday, a special event and hen parties. These are fun, friendly and very informative.

I am a qualified teacher (B.Ed Hons) and an OFSTED graded outstanding tutor within Adult Education  but most of all I’m PASSIONATE about delivering these workshops to those eager to learn. I love seeing learners achieve more than they thought possible in just a few short hours and how they walk a little taller and with huge smiles on their faces at their accomplishments.

Detailed descriptions of the workshops can be found on the individual dates or click here to read my blog on making a silver ring or bangle.  Would you like to organise a silver jewellery workshop in your area?

Leeanne, Blakeney, September 2020      I attended Wendy’s stacking ring workshop. I had so much fun and learnt many new skills. Wendy is very informative and patient. I found the workshop easy to follow and I am very happy with my finished items! I will definitely be booking onto another workshop!

Jan, Blakeney, September 2020   Just spent a lovely morning at Wendy’s workshop making stacking rings. I have never made anything like this before and am very pleased with my lovely rings. Wendy is a very talented lady, warm, friendly and very patient. The workshop was friendly and fun and at the same time, every aspect of social distancing was in place. Can’t wait to book another workshop with Wendy and learn more skills. Thank you.

Petra, Gloucester, September 2020   I spent a fab Saturday morning at Wendy’s workshop; I am not at all crafty but Wendy was so patient and I came away having made a beautiful ring, from scratch, for my daughter. Wendy is very knowledgeable and gave us a bit of history around silversmithing, so a very enjoyable time and the homemade cakes she provided really rounded off a fantastic morning. Highly recommended 👍🏼👍🏼

Suzanne, Gloucester, August 2020Had the most wonderful morning making my best friend a silver bangle for her 50th birthday also Added a small inscription. Wendy was amazing and so talented. Such a great teacher and my bangle turned out fabulous. Thank you x

Julia, Cheltenham, September 2020
Just spent a highly enjoyable afternoon making a silver spinner ring at Wendy’s workshop held at Glenfall House Cheltenham. Wendy’s a great teacher and gave help when needed but also allowed us all to do everything ourselves. I am delighted with my beautiful ring and can’t believe I actually made it! I highly recommend Wendy’s workshops.
Maggie, Gloucester, 2020   Wendy is a very skilled and informed teacher. Her groups are warm and welcoming, and fellow students are rapidly becoming friends. Thanks Wendy
