This class is for people who are new to silversmithing, here you will learn all the basic silver jewellery & metal work techniques.

The course is structured with projects that will build your skills, such as:

Basic Skills: Fabrication: You'll learn how to saw, file, sand & polishing the metal and how to achieve a professional finish.

Basic Skills: Soldering: Wire, sheet & sweat soldering, teaching you how to get comfortable with a torch and operate it safely,both at the studio and at home.

Texturing & Shaping metal: All kinds of possibilities for textures are explored and the textured metal shaped and domed to be used in a variety of jewellery pieces.

Other metal combined with Silver: Learn how to work with other metals that look great joined to silver: Copper -Brass - Titanium etc.

 Silver smithing &  Jewellery Classes Gold Coast

These are just the very first techniques you'll learn, they form the basic skill-set needed to successfully work with metal.

Cost: for a block of 8 classes $360.00 (not including tools or materials)

Students can then renew every 4 weeks for $180.00 for as long as they like, some people have been with me for over 7 years:).

Material costs vary, some people work big, some small, some work with silver, some with copper and you could even combine the two! I think between $50 & $150 will cover it, again depending on your choices.

There are some tools to share at the studio, you will be required to buy some basic tools as you go along, a bit at a time if you can get them all at once.

Check out some students work here

Intermediate classes follow on from this basic course and are open to students who have successfully completed the first 8 projects.
