Silversmithing (Level 1)

Course Overview

Throughout the year we will run three, independent, 10 week courses on Silversmithing.

  • Course 1: On this course you will learn the basics of silversmithing including using a piercing saw, texturing, filing, polishing, silver soldering, making a bail and making a silver pendant.
  • Course 2:  You will learn to make plain and decorated silver rings to the correct ring size.
  • Course 3: You will be taught how to set semi-precious stones into a piece of silver jewellery of your choice, this could be a pendant, earrings or another ring.

Course Delivery

Each Silversmithing course is independent of the others – basic skills will be taught on each course as needed.

Health and safety is an important aspect of the course.

All tools are provided in a well equipped workshop. Students will need to buy their own silver which is available from www.cooksongold.com.

The cost of materials will depend on the individual designs and choice of stones. There will be at least one project to complete on each course.
