Join us for a 2-week intensive silversmithing course in my fully equipped jeweller's studio in Lakeside.
This is a structured course for beginners or for intermediate silversmiths wanting to improve their technique.
Course Dates: 2 - 11 December 2020 on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from 9am - 3pm (total of 36 hours). Please make sure you are available to attend every day of the course.
Course Outline: Each day we will be manufacturing the items outlined below. Each item focuses on a particular silversmithing technique and participants are encouraged to add some of their own design flair to their work during this course.
Day 1 (2 Dec): hammered silver ring
Day 2 (3 Dec): pierced silver earrings (studs or hanging)
Day 3 (4 Dec): silver chain-making (bracelet or necklace)
Day 4 (9 Dec): silver chain-making (bracelet or necklace)
Day 5 (10 Dec): cabuchon stone set pendant
Day 6 (11 Dec): cabuchon stone set pendant
The studio can accommodate up to four participants. Tea & coffee will be served during the course of each day. Please bring a light snack for lunch.
Cost excludes silver & consumables which may be purchased at the studio as and when you need them. Total investment for these is estimated at R 700 - R1000 for the course. Participants on a budget are very welcome to incorporate copper into their work. Feel free to bring your own silver if you have and we can re-use it (recycling for the win!).
Unfortunately no refunds will be issued once tickets have been purchased and no make-up classes will be offered for missed days.
