What you'll do
During the workshop experience you will learn traditional craftsmanship, jewellery skills and techniques in small groups in a relaxed atmosphere. You'll be welcomed into my home, where the sterling silver earring workshop will take place. There will be a short health and safety induction session before we take a look at the tools and what you will be making. I will model each stage of the process and will be on hand to support you through the creative journey...but, your pieces of sterling silver jewellery will be made entirely by you! You will learn to cut, file and shape the metal before moving on to soldering, texturing and polishing. Silver, use of tools and break-time refreshment are included in the price and your pieces of jewellery will go home with you (you will make two pairs of earrings: one pair of studs and one dangle pair). This workshop is designed for those that have worked with metal before, are confident crafters or those that have control and patience as it can be fiddly creating earrings! The workshop will last approximately 3 hours (dependant on the number of guests attending), with us taking a break in the middle for a traditional Cornish treat
I am a jewellery designer and maker, working predominantly with silver. I founded Sable Cloud Jewellery in 2015 when I left the teaching profession and decided to focus the next phase of my life journey, working in an area of creativity that I am passionate about. I have been training as a silversmith for over three years and I am excited to be returning to teaching in a new guise. I currently run three different Airbnb Workshop Experiences. If a different date, time or Experience suits you better just get in touch as we can make arrangements to suit you.
Cornish Cream Tea - Let me know if you have any food allergies/dietary requirements at least a day before your workshop.
Silversmith Tools - You will be using my specialist silversmithing tools and I will provide the sterling silver.
