The 2 day silver jewellery making course is the ideal way to start to develop your skills in making silver jewellery, with a number of interesting techniques and approaches covered.

The 2 day course is open to anyone, whether they have had some experience before making jewellery or not. As the course is longer than the one day course you will have ample opportunity to cover the basic techniques as well as exploring more advanced techniques including basic stone setting and ring forming and bezel setting. 

The following topics are covered, with plenty of hands on to put into practice what we cover in the intro sessions:

  • Introduction to materials and techniques
  • Useful tools and resources
  • Sawing, sanding and filing
  • Texturing, mill rolling and decorative finishes
  • Annealing and preparation for fabrication
  • Basic and intermediate fabrication/soldering
  • Final finishing and polishing
  • Making your own findings (earring loops, clasps and jump rings)
  • Basic ring forming and bezel setting for stones

 

During the 2 day course you can expect to make 2 to 3 pieces which can include a set of earrings, a pendant, a bangle and a ring ….flexibility and choice are key components of the 2 Day course and you are free to suggest what you would like to make as well.

All basic materials costs are included as well as tea, coffee and biscuits.  There is an option to also work on a bangle/cuff (extra materials supplement of £25 - please indicate when booking that you wish to take this option).

As all courses cater for a maximum of three participants, you can be sure that you will have a more personalised experience and truly have the mentoring and guidance needed.

"I can highly recommend spending time with Jonathan. His infectious enthusiasm for his craft, his patience and expertise at introducing and guiding us through skills we had never realised we could achieve and his gracious hospitality are just a few reasons why you should book yourself onto one of his courses. Myself and a friend spent 2 days on Jonathans Silver making course, at his home Studio in Ely, and not only came away with 2 pieces of Silver Jewellery that we are now the proud owners and wearers of but we learnt so much in such a short time about a craft we had absolutely no knowledge of let alone any experience of participating in. We left feeling confident enough to start making our own Silver Jewellery and we both look forward to putting our newfound knowledge to good use."  Sarah Line
"Jonathan provided a wonderful supportive and fun learning experience . He shared his experience and skills with great enthusiam , patience and generosity . The two days gave time to look in more depth at the various techniques and how they can be used to create a piece of jewellery that is your own creation. There was a good mixture of hands on experience and informative 121 tutoring in using materials and tools. The information sheets were extremely comprehensive and I left full of ideas , three beautiful pieces of jewellery and a desire to take my new found craft further."   Desnee Cunnane
"I had a wonderful time on this course. Jonathan is an excellent teacher, we all had a great deal of fun as well as learning a lot of techniques. I managed to come away making 3 pieces of beautiful jewellery, I have definitely got the bug and shall continue to persue my new found love of silversmithing. I really hope to join Jonathan again on another one of his courses or some one on one tutoring in the future"  Charly Mace
