Introduction to Silversmithing Course
Enjoy learning how to make your own silver jewellery in this fun and satisfying hands-on workshop with Rob Morris in his purpose-built workshop overlooking Whitstable and the sea.
In the morning, Rob will take you through the joys and pitfalls of working with silver. He’ll explain the properties of different metals, demonstrate a selection of techniques such as forging, texturing, soldering and wax carving. You’ll then experiment with copper to get a feel for the basic techniques involved in manipulating metal.
All prices are per attendee and exclude the metal we supply for you to use – this will be costed by weighing your finished piece(s) at the end of your session and charged based on that day’s precious metal price, this seems fairest, as students tend to make pieces of very different weights!
N.B. If there aren’t enough students to make a course viable, we may ask you to change dates.
