Half Day Workshop 10am - 1pm OR 2pm - 5pm Mon - Sat
This workshop is a taster into the world of silver-smithing. It will satisfy your curiosity about this traditional and wonderful and give you the sense of accomplishment in creating a simple piece to take with you as a memory from your holiday. All of this in a fun day out socialising and enjoying our tropical surroundings.
On the day, we will provide:
Filtered Sumatran coffee mixed fresh fruit juices, ice tea, green tea and water all day
5 grammes of silver each to make your chosen ring/pendant or earrings
Tuition, use of fully equipped workshop and tools
Photos of you making your piece and the jewellery piece itself sent to your email
This workshop is a great way to to start your interest in silver-smithing or just have a fun day out with not too much thinking to be done. We hold you hand the whole way through. Plenty of interaction with the tools, learning to file, solder and anneal.
We offer you an insight into silversmithing by providing first a demonstration on the properties of silver which you will follow. We show you how to texture your silver piece whether it be a ring or pendant you decide to make, there are so many ways to create a subtle feel to your piece. Laminating, wire spiraling, creating silver balls and applying them, satin finish with the polisher....there is much you can do. The piece needs to be fairly simple as you have a limited time of 3 hours.
See what can be achieved from our pictures.
Extra silver can be purchased for $1.10 USD per gram and if you feel inspired to extend your piece with a gemstone you can add this to your workshop. It might take a little more time to create your masterpiece, so be aware of this, but there is plenty of help along the way!
