This course will explore the fundamental techniques used in silversmithing. Silversmithing is the discipline of constructing vessels, jewellery and cutlery from precious and non-ferrous metals. Students will explore traditional techniques including forging and fabrication of metal.

Our silversmithing course covers traditional techniques of forging, raising and sinking, as well as general fabrication methods

Students will gain practical experience in a range of silversmithing activities – hollowware, flatware, forging and fabrication.
Projects could include forged items, such as cutlery and utensils or a large jewellery cuff or bangle and flatware items such as tableware or a small sculptural piece. This course is useful for students wishing to explore the forging and shaping of metals to develop an understanding of the way non-ferrous and precious metals behave while being worked. It would also suit the more experienced jewellery student who has already completed a jewellery course and wishes to expand on their knowledge.
