Indulge your passion for creative metalwork over 6 weeks. 

This exceptional class follows on from Beginners metalwork 1 and covers further basic metalwork skills that you require to move onto more complex tasks when learning to work as a silversmith. It provides students with 15 hours of class time.

Through structured learning you will gain an understanding of materials and tools used to create unique jewellery. Follow on from metalwork 1 with the techniques of riveting, texturing and working with alternate materials. Using these techniques you will complete at least 1 project of your own design.

As this is a learning environment, base metals and a silver for one project are provided. Students are welcome to purchase their own silver for use in class. You will need to discuss your design and what is needed with your teacher throughout the class.
