Jewellery class on Wednesday evenings at Maiden Erlegh School in Reading


Intermediate/Advanced Jewellery class on Wednesday evenings at Maiden Erlegh School in Reading

18:45 – 21:15 Wednesday evenings – intermediate/advanced jewellery class – next 10 week session starting 23 January £105

Continue learning silver jewellery making with an emphasis on more challenging projects. Students will be guided through a series of projects or a single more complex project. The focus will be on developing skills, so the class is for learners with some experience, but basic techniques will be reviewed as necessary. We will cover techniques including but not limited to stone setting and complex soldering. Full instruction in the use of tools and equipment will be given. Students can work in silver or copper or brass.

Teaching jewellery making for a hen do

This past weekend I taught a group of eight women who were having a whole weekend of activities for a hen do. They each made a silver ring and a silver bangle. It all went well! If you would like to learn how to make your own silver jewellery, I teach private jewellery lessons in Reading!
