This course will focus on developing basic smithing skills – techniques such as soldering, forging, planishing (creating a hammered surface,) stamping and oxidising – to create two pieces of silver jewellery.
Who’s it For?
No prior experience is necessary, but you’ll be working in a workshop environment with hot metal and sharp hand tools tools; come prepared for an environment that will be noisy (hammering metal is not peaceful!), and where manual dexterity is an advantage.
