A 3 hour workshop Session enables you to learn the basics of silversmithing, the first 2 hours are taught in copper as it is an easier metal to use and enables the student to see the techniques easier and build their confidence before moving on to Silver. Within this session you will learn how to adapt, and manipulate the metal by Sawing, piercing, hammering, annealing, patinating and forming. You will also learn 2 types of soldering. These are all the basic skills required in silversmithing. It also covers the tools used, how to set up a workbench at home and other techniques such as stamping. The final hour enables you to create a solid silver ring band. This session also covers polishing and finishing. People have previously made normal rings, thumb rings and pinky rings. Refreshments are available in sessions including, tea and coffee, soft drinks and biscuits. We can cover for dietary requirements if given notice

Il tuo host
I am Lou, Creative Director and founder of The Wonky Jewellery Company. I qualified as a Silversmith and Mixed media artist after receiving a Bachelor of Honors degree with the Northern School of Art, in the North East of England. Since then I went on to train as a teacher in English, Art and silversmithing. I have exhibited and sold my work world wide, and in 2019 I was nominated for the Venicelands Arts Prize. I have been a practicing artist and silversmith for 15 years. I am a very friendly person with an adaptable and quirky teaching style. I am also extremely passionate about what I do and love to share my skills with others.
Dove ti troverai
The workshops are conducted in my Jewellery studio which is within a private woodland estate. I have 4 bespoke handmade jewellery benches. The scenery within the estate is beautiful and the studio looks out onto a small woodland. A short walk from the studio is a beautiful lake with an abundance of birds.
