Join CSSJ  for the perfect silver jewellery for beginners weekend workshop and learn how to make your very own jewellery in Sterling Silver. In this beginner-level weekend workshop, you’ll learn all about the traditional techniques and tools used to make jewellery. We’ll cover a checklist of essential techniques such as sawing, filing, annealing, texturing, shaping, and soldering. Our expert tutors will demonstrate every step of the process and then guide you as you practise your new skills. To begin with, you will get creative with copper, learning the skills and experimenting until you have the confidence to move on and create a finished piece in silver. You can choose to make a ring, a bangle, a pendant, or a pair of earrings. Our talented tutors will be on hand to help you come up with designs using your ideas and inspirations. This course is a great starting point if you are taking your first steps in jewellery making, or if you just want a fun-filled creative activity!

This course does not include stone setting but is a good starting block for learning the techniques you will need to progress to stone setting. Why not check our upcoming schedule for stone setting or sea glass workshops if you’d like to move on to these more advanced techniques after your beginner’s workshop.

Level: Suitable for all

What to bring:

  • We’ll provide everything you need for your Silver Jewellery for Beginners weekend workshop including tools and enough silver to make a regular sized bangle as pictured. You have the option to purchase extra silver at cost price if you’d like to go big and create a wide statement bangle
  • Please bring along glasses if you need them
  • Wear appropriate, warm clothing and footwear for a studio environment including closed-toe shoes. Why not order yourself a CSSJ apron to make you feel right at home in your workshop?
  • If you have long hair please wear it up
  • If you are the type of person who prefers to arm yourself with some knowledge ahead of time then we have prepared a Pinterest page filled with jewellery making information and roll printing inspiration just for you!
  • Tea, coffee and biscuits supplied. If you could bring a lidded cup that would be great! Bring your own lunch to eat in the studio or we can advise you of nearby places to eat
