Introduction

Health & Safety

Alex will give a little introduction to kick things off, and the team will then follow up with a focus on health and safety. Important in any workshop environment, we want to ensure that everyone feels especially comfortable and confident in ours.

Design & Make

Your introduction will be followed by a hands-on morning learning a range of traditional jewellery skills, such as how to shape, solder and texture your metal, and advice on positioning and composition - all essential for creating your piece.

You will be working in Sterling Silver, but your piece can be gold-plated if you wish. Any gold-plating will be completed by our external supplier, so we will send it on to you by post when complete.
