Looking for a new creative outlet?
Fancied making your own jewellery?
In this taster session you will have one to one tuition from Claire, taking you from never having picked up a hammer to completing your first piece! All you need to bring is you, and maybe some ideas... although these can always be provided.
This session is open to anyone, however it is especially suited to you if are completely new to silversmithing and jewellery making.
In the short session (2.5 hours) you can expect to complete one small piece, such as a simple ring or pendant.
For the longer session (4.5 hours) you may complete two or three small pieces or a single larger or more complex piece - like a bangle or a ring with a stone setting.
Silver is included to make the sort of items mentioned. You may be able to make more in the session, although there will be a charge for additional material.
If you are looking for more specific, in depth or ongoing tuition please see the Makers Sessions.

I did the 2.5 hour session with Claire and it was great. With her support and guidance, I made two lovely rings.
Claire was patient - I’d never done silversmithing before - and friendly. She even, very kindly, let me meet her two cats!
I really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone!
I did the 2.5hr session in which time I made a lovely ring and bracelet and Claire aided me every step of the way. I had little prior experience to silversmithing, Claire was very supportive and reassuring. The studio is well equipped and Claire taught me how to use everything and how to shape my ideas into something I could make. Would recommend!
