At Silverpetal Studio our Beginner’s Silver Jewellery class is held once a week for 5 consecutive weeks. From 6.30 until 9pm. This class is held on a Monday evening. 

Who is this course for?

This is a short – but fully inclusive course, designed to induct new starters in to the workshop and introduce silver jewellery making and silversmithing techniques at complete beginner’s level. The course is intended as a precursor to joining a weekly non-directed term time class. It includes tuition using most of the tools and equipment you are likely to use during non-directed classes. You will also touch on most of the basic skills making you ready to join a weekly term time class without feeling isolated or bewildered in the workshop. This is a great course for anyone who prefers to be taught on a 1:1 basis.  

This is a small class limited to 6 students only per course. Each student receives individual help and attention throughout each session, enabling each person to complete up to 4 wonderful pieces of handmade jewellery without any prior knowledge or experience.

Techniques covered:

Beginner's Silver Jewellery Course

Learn how to make a silver bracelet during this course

This excellent introductory course will provide beginners with a starting point in the subject. All the basics of the subject will be looked at in brief over the 5 weeks. Including annealing, soldering, pickling, cutting, forming, making findings and texturing. The course will focus on developing the basic skills of silver jewellery making, good studio habits, the correct use of tools and an in-depth knowledge of fabrication techniques. This course is also an induction in to the workshop health and safety practices.

Our Beginner’s Silver Jewellery Course is also a good refresher course for individuals who may have studied the subject a number of years ago and wish to start the craft again.

What’s included:

You will make a mixture of silver and copper items. And these materials needed to make the projects is included in the price. All consumables like saw blades and drill bits are included along with the relevant silver solders.

After the Beginner’s Silver Jewellery Course:

This introductory course is designed to introduce you to both the workshop and the subject; to enable you to join other studio classes to develop your skills further. After completing this 5 week course you will be able to attend any of the Silverpetal Specialist Classes, or a weekly mixed ability studio time class.

These are non-directed open studio sessions to work on projects of your own choice, at your own pace. Please see Weekly jewellery making term time classes for more information regarding these sessions. 

Pressed for time?

If you cannot attend on a weekly basis we offer a beginner’s taster option. This can either be a half day to make a silver ring, or a full taster day to make a ring and a pendant or earrings. We also offer 1:1 days tailored around your own schedule. Please e-mail for further info.

Tools for beginner’s silver jewellery making

There is an extensive tool shop at the Studio. We sell a comprehensive selection of beginner’s kits, so building up your own tool kit during and after the course is easy to do. Help and advice on what to buy is always available if needed. View our standard kit, deluxe kit and ultimate kits. These are available to pre-order for collection during your course if you wish, and will be on show during your classes.

Our Studio workshop is custom built and very well equipped. We have ample free on-site parking. So sign up today to start an exciting new hobby.

    The pace was great and it was lovely to feel challenged but supported the entire course. I feel well versed to be able to have a go at some projects at home – but I am returning for another course. Simply brilliant – fun, informative, creative in a great studio with Ange’s expertise.

    Brilliant course. Good sized class, really enjoyed the ring project. I was amazed how quick it was to produce something. Loved the earrings too – will make some more silver ones in the weekly classes.

    The whole course was fantastic! I managed to make a ring in a couple of hours 🙂 When Angela showed us each process we went away and did that bit. Then we were shown the next stage – was really helpful as you didn’t have to remember lots of different new things. The small class size meant that help was on hand constantly. I have now joined the intermediate to advanced weekly workshops and I’m loving it. I’ve been able to join and get on almost un-aided without struggling. I have discovered a great new hobby at last.

    I was extremely happy with what I produced throughout the course. I was able to create a lot more by myself than I was ever expecting. I felt we were always kept busy – so the course in turn has felt like really good value for money. I have now joined the weekly workshops and really enjoying working more on my own but with help if I need it.

    Emily Pope, Sheffield

    Very friendly course. A wide variety of different things are covered and its explained well. I had lots of fun and learnt a lot of things and tips I couldn’t have worked out on my own. Much better than trying to learn off Utube! Highly recommended.

    Clare Babe, Barlborough

    I really loved the variety of items we could make. We went straight in to the practical experience which was great as you got to observe and then immediately try it yourself. I felt that it helped to retain the information and use it each week.

    What a wonderful way to spend an evening with a small group of people, learning several new skills. I have learnt lots and Angie has plenty of patience with us all. You have plenty of 1:1 coaching and help when needed. Great fun and learnt plenty – thanks

    I enjoyed the whole course. Lots of different things to make and lots of different techniques. We made more than I thought we would. The instructions were lovely and clear and I loved the fact that everything was so organised. It was good to be in a small group. Had a great time, loved it – it just went far too fast.
