Based in Chesterfield, close to Sheffield, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We are the ideal choice for learning the art of jewellery silver soldering. At Silverpetal Studio we offer a Soldering Masterclass. This is an ideal one day course for anyone who is struggling with soldering, or anyone who would like to learn more advanced techniques.
Soldering is possibly the most important basic requirement for silver jewellery making and unfortunately – possibly one of the most difficult to master! You may find that soldering is your stumbling block for at least a few weeks when you start out. Practice, time and patience are needed until things seem to ‘go right.’ It is easy to be discouraged if you don’t immediately experience success! But once you get the hang of it all manner of designs will be available for you to try within your jewellery making.
Our one day course is designed to help with basic soldering to help get through any little soldering issues you may be experiencing. Helping you to become more confident and successful in your jewellery making. There is more information about what we will do during the day on our course page here. You may also book in by following this link. We also look at different soldering methods. This is a great feature of the class and one which more advanced students will find a real boost to their skills. There are several different silver soldering techniques. Our course will show you each one and help you to decide which one would be relevant to each aspect of your work.
