Silver Jewellery Workshop



Description

At this creative and hands-on workshop, rookie silversmiths will design and make a handmade silver pendant from 100% recycled sterling silver. You will be introduced to professional trade jewellery techniques, including the craft of saw-piercing, filing and polishing. You’ll also learn conceptual design skills as you design your pendant based on a significant memory.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and has a strong focus on design and creativity. We’ll steer clear of cookie-cutter production and allow room for you to design a meaningful and beautiful piece of wearable art that is as unique as you are.
