Love to make jewellery but stumble at the Soldering hurdle? It's a common problem. In this intensive workshop, we strip your soldering back to basics, using simple equipment that you can easily access and use at home, we take the scary out of soldering and take you through the techniques to achieve basic soldering joins to take your jewellery to the next level.
In this class we cover:
Materials, tools, what findings work for each job, measuring, planning, cutting and making.
By the end of this session, you should have a collection of your own hand made findings for various jobs ready to go.
Basic soldering techniques demonstration, soldering practice and then you will solder all of your findings that you made in the previous session.
By the end of the course, you should be able to successfully make your own simple findings for most jobs and solder then together.
All of the materials are provided in the cost of the course, you just need to wear comfortable clothing and bring an apron.
Some jewellery making experience is a real help in this course- but not essential. If you book for this course and have no making experience at all- please e mail us to let us know.

We are a collective of designers and makers curated by Eran Naylor (owner and designer) creating and bringing to you beautiful and organic jewellery, bags and home wares. Our house label of jewellery and bags are made here in our studio. Our inspirations for our collections come from designs and patterns from the old Mesopotamian regions, India and South America, transferring the beauty of older times to bold, classic pieces that can be worn or used with ease today.
We also run a school of craft, where we invite exciting and innovative teachers to come in and teach classes so that you can learn new skills from them. These are run in one of our two beautiful spaces in and around our shop and studio.
