Whether you are new to jewellery making or would like some workshop time to improve your skills, this is the course for you. Over the 10 weeks, we will cover many of the traditional techniques used in the silver trade, and you will use them to make at least two beautifully crafted items designed by yourself.
The course is led by Beccy Gillatt.
