Lydney – Taurus Crafts – Four-week Beginners’ Silver Jewellery Evening Class – FULLY BOOKED
April 2 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm£25.00
Silver Jewellery Course – Beginners
This four-week silver jewellery course, held on Tuesday evenings in April 2024 from 6.15pm to 8.30pm is suitable for complete beginners or anyone wishing to refresh their skills from complete scratch.
During the four weeks you will learn the following techniques on a variety of pieces:
Filing and sanding
Texturing and stamping
Finishing and polishing
You will be starting with a simple hammered ring in the first week and progress on to a cut piece (pendant, keyring or earrings) and thereafter a piece to be discussed with you all (eg stone setting, a chain or a bangle, but this can be mutually agreed upon). You will be given the freedom to bring your own ideas to the table, or I can provide you with myriad ideas and examples of my own to help you along with the design process.
The cost of the course is £150 for four weeks. (Silver used on projects will be charged at cost price.) Book your place with a £25 deposit (see Ts&Cs for terms) and pay the balance two weeks before the start of the course when you will receive an email with joining instructions. Only FIVE places in total available.
Here are just a few of the hundreds of examples of student-made pieces in the past with Wendy:
Hear what others who’ve done my courses have to say by googling WMM Silver and reading the reviews. Here are just a couple:
“Thoroughly enjoyed Wendy’s ring making course – she was a brilliant teacher, explaining all the steps with ease for a range of abilities/knowledge, helping us to make really beautiful rings. Was a great day plus learnt lots about silver jewellery I didn’t know before!”
“Absolutely wonderful. The course exceeded all my expectations. I have come away with the skills to continue at home and to build on them. Thank you Wendy.”
“The class was amazing and perfect for anyone looking to get into the hobby. The teaching style was easy to follow, friendly and all-round excellent.”
“Thoroughly enjoyed my spinning ring workshop and wonderful to take away a finished ring, I love it! Wendy is very experienced and a patient teacher. It was the perfect balance of guidance, demonstration and autonomy so that you have really made your own ring with Wendy happily on hand to give a much or a little help as you want. I had my workshop as a gift – a great idea – an interesting enjoyable day had. Thank you!”
