Jewellery Making for Beginners | Summer School Workshop – Friday 26/07/24-23/08/24


This bumper packed course will equip you with key skills. At the beginning of the course you will make a silver ring with cut-outs.
From this project, you will experience piercing, drilling, using files, annealing, pickling, forming, soldering, finishing and polishing. In the second half of the course you will create a piece of your own design that encompasses techniques such as: texturing via the rolling mill, granulation (melting silver into balls), texturing via pendant motor, sweat soldering (laminating metal sheets), twisted wire, liver of sulphur patination (making silver black), and making or using fittings.

Silver for your initial ring is provided by the college. You will need to purchase materials for your further projects. The cost will be determined by your design – you will be given guidance by the tutor.

Tutor Sarah Silve. This course runs for 5 consecutive Fridays: the first session is for three hours (10am-1pm) and the four subsequent sessions are for six hours (10am-4.30pm).


This course is suitable for new learners and those with experience.
