Intro to Silversmithing Weekend - Sat & Sun 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, piercework, 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”
