Have you travelled off or up island in the past 2 WEEKS (or the 2 weeks prior to your course)? We are restricting registration to students within the Greater Victoria area for the time being. The Provincial Health Officer has asked that people remain in their own region of BC. This is our attempt to implement her request. Thank You!

Tuesdays 6 - 9 pm for 6 weeks | $580
Materials included (approx. $60 value)
No experience necessary

Learn and develop the essential foundational skills of traditional silversmithing in this slower-paced course with instructor Fiona Maclean.

Over the 6 weeks, Fiona will guide you through the fundamental skills of sawing, drilling, forming, filing, sanding, several soldering techniques, various ways of polishing and finishing, and making your own findings! There will be plenty of time to practice this wide array of techniques to let them sink in.

You will learn the skills to enable you to design and fabricate a ring, pendant or pair of earrings during the last two classes of the course which you, of course, get to keep! In addition to the final project of your own design, there are a couple of projects that include a textured sterling silver ring band, and samples from the various techniques learned.

This is an extended in-depth course, perfect for the beginner wishing to develop a solid foundation of the tools and techniques of silversmithing.

All tools and materials are included valued at $60.
 
* This course is a prerequisite for more advanced classes and workshops.
* Stone Setting is not covered in this course, but is covered in the Stone Setting Weekend workshop, or the Intermediate Silversmithing Course.
* Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible for open-studio bench rental.
 

What our students have to say:

“Great atmosphere and knowledgeable instructors. No lack of information or solutions, well organized”

“I now feel that I have a good base to start this new part of my artistic endeavours. I think it was well presented with just the right touch of humour and patience”

“I loved that we worked on the same project generally, but Jana helped customize to suit our unique styles”
