A day with me in my cosy workshop making silver jewellery is a proper fun and productive day out. You don’t need any experience. I will give you as much, or as little, help as you need.
What to expect:
The usual routine is to meet at my Ditchling Common studio at 10.30 for tea and to decide what to make. We then set about making silver until lunch time. A light lunch with a glass of wine is included. Then it's back to the workshop to finish your creation. At about 3pm we have tea while your work is polishing. It only remains to find a beautiful box for your silver, take your photo and then you are done and will have made your first piece of silver!
A day in the workshop is a fantastic gift – one you can both give and benefit by. Please click here to purchase or you can contact me to book. Time and date by arrangement and weekends are fine.
This is a great value day at £120 for the first person and £60 for an accompanying friend.
12g of silver per person is included in the deal - enough to make a pair of earrings, or similar. I can provide additional silver if you want to make a few pieces, as some people do.
I'm lucky to find that I often develop wonderful relationships with my handmade silver customers. Here is what some of them have to say about my silver making days:
"Thank you so much for our day silversmithing. It truly surpassed our expectations. I can not believe the fantastic quality of our finished items. Your gentle support and guidance lead to items to be proud of. Your warmth and hospitality was second to none. I believe the cost to be exceptionally good value. We are definitely coming back for another day."
Sue and Rebecca - December 2017
Brilliant fun experience, with good instructions, we were very happy with our new pieces, made during the day. Would definitely like to have another day."
"We really enjoyed the course, atmosphere, lunch and your company. So relaxed and friendly and I wear the pieces I made nearly every day! My daughter in law was also thrilled with the bracelet I made her. Hope to come again in the future."
