Have you always wanted to try silversmithing? Here's your chance to test it out without committing to a lengthy course! Over one info-packed weekend, you will learn the skills necessary to create a finished silver ring, pendant or pair of earrings of your own design.
Silversmith Nina Turczyn (Paprika Design) will guide you through the silversmithing basics of sawing, drilling, pierce-work, filing, texturing, doming & forming, soldering, basic stone-setting and polishing.
By the end of the weekend, you'll have created an original piece of silver jewellery that you can bring home and wear. This course is the perfect intro to the art of silversmithing for those with no prior experience, and a fun and productive way to spend a weekend.
All tools and materials are included, with the silver valued at $60.
*This course is a prerequisite for more advanced classes and workshops.
*Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible for open-studio bench rental.
What some of our students have to say:
“I loved how hands on it was and that we got to make several small, fully realized projects to take away”
“I enjoyed most that I had zero previous experience in silversmithing but walked away having accomplished professional-grade work! Empowering!”
“Loved that we learned enough various skills to be able to dream up our own creations”
