This 3 day intensive course introduces participants to basic skills used to create silver jewellery - including saw piercing, filing, soldering, polishing, decorative finishes, & basic design principles. Learners will be guided through the design and creation of a neck pendant and a finger ring.

Other affordable options such as brass and copper are available should you choose not to work in silver.
