This mini taster session will introduce you to the techniques needed to make a piece of jewellery using traditional silversmithing skills with trained jeweler Melanie Bowler.
Melanie will guide you through different methods & designs, and how to apply them to silversmithing projects.
If you enjoy this taster you might come back and try her half day workshop in March where you will create either a ring, earrings or a pendant. You’ll be amazed and delighted with what you can create in a half day session.
