Lydney – Taurus Crafts – Four-Week Beginners’ Evening Course – Tuesdays Sept – FULLY BOOKED
September 5 @ 6:30 pm - September 26 @ 8:30 pm£25.00
This four-week jewellery course is for anyone who is totally new to silver jewellery making and silversmithing and who would like to dip their toes in some basic techniques whilst learning some excellent skills. You will produce at least three pieces of sterling silver jewellery during the four weeks. The course starts on Tuesday, 5th September 6.30pm to 8.30pm and is held at WMM Silver’s studio based at Taurus Crafts, Lydney. Subsequent dates are: 12th, 19th and 26th September. There is an option to continue ad hoc classes moving on into October too, but we can discuss and arrange that during the September classes.
There is a maximum number of five places available.
During the four weeks you will learn how to do the following:
Filing and sanding
Finishing and polishing
You will also have the opportunity to develop more skills using some or all of the following techniques:
Making findings (ear wires, earring posts, bails etc)
The cost of the course is £150 for four weeks which includes all sundries (gas, solder, sandpaper etc); silver used in projects will be charged at cost price. Pay a deposit of £25 now to secure your place and you will be asked to pay the balance a week before the course starts.
Here are just a few of the hundreds of examples of beginner student-made pieces in the past at my classes. Many of my students have gone on to run their own businesses either designing and making and/or teaching others.
