What you will do

3 hour workshop

Daytime

These intensive workshops are a perfect introduction for anyone keen to try jewellery making using traditional silversmithing techniques. Whether you're someone who has a few hours to spare and thought you'd try something new, or you're a budding jeweller yourself, we'll make sure that by the end of the session you go away with not one, but TWO completely unique pieces of silver jewellery made entirely by you! *

Amongst other techniques, you will learn:

  • How to thread and use a piercing saw to cut metal
  • How to use a jewellers bench peg
  • How to use a blowtorch to solder two pieces of metal together
  • How to finish your designs ready for wear

If, after your class you're inspired to continue making more of your own silver jewellery, we'll provide you with a detailed list of where you can find supplies, tools and resources with which to get cracking!

Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

*Two pieces include a silver ring and a pair of silver stud earrings or cufflinks.

I can’t recommend Rod’s workshop enough, we learnt a lot while ‘playing’ with materials and tools. It was a great intense workshop and I will definitely come back.His passion and enthusiasm make the learning experience even better, thank you so much Rod, I really enjoyed those three hours. I proudly wear the ring that I made under his supervision, can’t wait to make more!

Great day where we learned some good techniques for making cool silver jewellery. Rod explained and showed everything in a clear way. There was room for improvisations and we left with some unique designs, a lot of knowledge + guidance for moving forward on our own.

What a great half day (even if it did mean not taking advantage of the 'heatwave'!). We were gently steered through the surprisingly challenging aspects of making a ring (who knew how many processes were involved!) but always felt confident and i left felt really inspired and with a pretty professional looking set of ring and earrings ( we had a little time at the end to make a pair of earrings too).

Such a wonderful experience with an excellent artist, Rod was such a thoughtful and dedicated teacher. I left beaming with pride and joy at the exciting making process and the beautiful results. I will treasure my creations and enjoy wearing my unique jewellery. Would highly recommend.

A very informative and interesting workshop. I learnt a lot in such a short period of time. Rod is a patient, empathic, warm and passionate teacher and knows how to include all his students. If there was a 'part 2', I would definitely attend it and I strongly recommend it for anyone thinking of developing their hobby of jewellery making. Also, it was great fun to experiment!

I thought the workshop was excellent. It was easy to follow, gave me lots of tips, and I thought was good value for money. I learnt lots of new things and left with exceptional pieces of jewellery. Hours well spent! Thanks Rod!

As a beginner, I found the instructions were delivered in a clear and easy manner. One lesson is not sufficient and I hope to return for more schooling on the art and skill of jewellery making!

It was a pleasure to attend Roderick's class. Roderick's class was very well presented and structured to include everyone's personal learning needs. I am delighted with my ring and earrings, both finished to a high standard, which reflects the standard of teaching.

I really enjoyed the silver jewellery making workshop with Rod and I'm pleased with what I made (a ring and two pairs of earrings). Rod is a skilled tutor and takes you through the process step by step. I definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in making their own silver jewellery.

Rod’s workshop was faultless! He is not only an expert at his craft but a confident and friendly teacher. This was a birthday gift and I had never made jewellery before - I am now really keen to book another course, not least because I love wearing my new ring and earrings! I can’t recommend this highly enough. Thanks again!

It has been by far the most rewarding and fulfilling course I have ever done! Rod is very knowledgable and patient, he explains each passage thoroughly, demonstrate it and then watches closely whilst you do it, giving you great tips and suggestions. I feel that with only three hours course I know so much more about jewellery and the correct tools and materials to use. I am in love with the jewels I have created with Rod's help! He keeps the class very interesting and fun, I really enjoyed spending time with him, and I highly recommend his classes! Now I can't wait to purchase some materials and start creating!

Fantastic course! I had the opportunity to make a lovely silver ring and a pair of cufflinks for my partner. Rod was very friendly and great at explaining all the different stages of jewellery making to our small group. He was also very careful with health and safety, and ensured we were comfortable throughout the class.
