Intro to Silversmithing Weekend
Saturday & Sunday | 10am - 4pm
This class is offered monthly | No experience necessary
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, polishing and even setting a simple gemstone into your design!
By the end of the weekend you'll have created an original piece of silver jewellery that you can bring home and wear. This project-based course is the perfect intro to the art of silversmithing, and a fun and productive way to spend a weekend.
All tools and materials are included and it is a prerequisite for more advanced classes and workshops.
*Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible for open-studio rental.
What 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”
