About this workshop
This is an advanced workshop where you will need previous knowledge of silver jewellery making. It is held on 2 days over 2 different weeks. You will improve on your previous silver-smithing techniques such as: sawing, annealing, soldering, forming, texturing, polishing and learn new skills with stone setting, wax carving and cleaning up a casting. Workshops are held in my home studio in Tarrawanna. The address will be sent to you via email once you make your booking. Snacks, tea, coffee & water is provided. Cost is $250 AUD per person for the 2 days. This will include an information pack, some consumables, a small amount of silver, the use of my tools and equipment and my knowledge and assistance. Additional fees will be charged for the cast ring, approximately $45. You can purchase a cabochon stone during class (approximately $15 - $20) or feel free to shop online for a CABOCHON STONE ONLY and bring it to class. A minimum stone size of 10mm round or oval is required. Each workshop class has no more than 4 students, ensuring the teaching time is very much one on one. There is a minimum requirement of 3 students, before a workshop will proceed. To secure your place in the workshop full payment is required upon booking. The remaining payments for any extra materials can be paid on, or before the day of the workshop.
