Learn the basics of traditional silversmithing in this 4 week course by instructor Erin Christensen (Erin Christensen Jewellery).
Over the course of 4 weeks, Erin will guide you through the basics from sawing, forming and filing to soldering, polishing and basic stone-setting! This is a slower-paced course, perfect for the beginner wishing to learn about the tools and techniques of silversmithing, and is a prerequisite for more advanced classes and workshops. You will learn a wide array of basic techniques and the knowledge to design and fabricate a ring, pendant or pair of earrings during the last portion of course which you get to take home and keep!
*Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible for open-studio rental.
