Acid Etching

Acid etching is a fantastic way to add visual interest to your jewellery. This workshop will look at the many different ways to introduce imagery and textures to sheet metal surfaces using the technique.

There are many different ways to create images using the acid etching technique.  This day will provide an over-view and a taster of several of these different creative processes. We will look at very accessible ways to introduce imagery. Mainly using equipment and materials which you may already have around the home. This will give you a basic knowledge to use the technique after the day. you will be able to decide which of the techniques you like the best. Or, which suits your jewellery style the best.

Acid EtchingThe workshop will be an opportunity to try this interesting technique and to experience the versatility of this medium for jewellery making. Advice will also be given on how to use the technique safely in your own studio environment or at home.

All tools and equipment are included. We will have afternoon tea & cakes. Materials are extra and payable on the day. Silver, brass or copper can be used.

At Lunch time;

We are adjacent to the Chesterfield Canal where lunch may be purchased from the cafe or a pack up may be eaten at the picnic site. There is also a Morrisons supermarket close by with a cafe, cash point, etc. The studio is closed and locked over the lunch break and it is fine to leave any belongings if you wish.


This workshop is open to beginners. This is a subject which can be used to complement other applications – such as beading. Individuals used to using metals & tools may find the subject easier on the day. However, this is not essential. Feel free to contact us to discuss your ability before booking if you are not sure.

  1. jane marshall, Dronfield, Near Sheffield.

    An excellent day. Lots of different ways of working on the morning and after lunch, being shown how to use the acid safely to create designs on copper and silver. As always on Silver Petal courses the day is really well planned and everyone goes home with lots of new skills and something they have made.

    Absolutely loved this course today…everything was explained to make it so simple to do outside of the studio…I will definitely be trying this at home with the knowledge and confidence that doing the course has given me. Loved the pieces that we made…They came out fantastic! Massively recommend doing this course! Thanks for a great day xxx

    An excellent day. It was well structured and allowed us to experiment with a range of techniques. As always, Ange was able to advise on how to achieve effects in a very practical and clear way. I’m delighted with my ‘products’ and will enjoy completing finished pieces. I felt we had great tuition and the freedom to create very individual designs. Thanks Ange.
