Make a Silver Christmas Gift in a Day

You will design and make a silver Christmas gift for a loved one, employing specialist techniques to design and make your gift.  It could be a pair of earrings or cufflinks, a pendant, a keyring – the choice is yours.
Our experienced tutor will teach you how to transform silver into a beautiful gift. You will gain knowledge of designing, forming and finishing your silver item using a variety of silversmithing methods and hand tools.
All the tools, materials and teaching needed to produce your gift will be provided.
The course is suitable for beginners with no prior jewellery making experience, or for those with some knowledge who’d like to refresh and extend their skills.
At the end of the day you will receive a certificate from Bishopsland Educational Trust and the silver object will be yours to keep.
You can do this course as a stand alone or book multiple short courses to build up a bank of jewellery and metalsmithing skills.
Suitability: The course is open to anyone with an interest in jewellery making who is 18 years of age and above
What to bring/wear: All tools and material are included. Please wear practical clothes and footwear (closed shoes, no open toes) and ensure arms/legs are covered.  If you have long hair, please tie it back. You will need to bring an apron and your lunch, although Brooks Cafe is on site should you wish to buy lunch. Tea, coffee, water will be provided.
Accessibility: There is plenty of parking on site and accessible parking spaces are marked.  There are some uneven surfaces such as cobbles due to the historic nature of the Estate. Seating is provided but the nature of the course may necessitate some standing.  Please contact us if you would like to have an informal chat about access prior to booking.
