  • Description

    Looking to discover a new hobby? Come along to this fun craft workshop in Cornwall and learn traditional craftsmanship jewellery making skills and techniques.


    During this jewellery class, you will learn to size your finger, measure out silver, cut, file and shape the metal before moving on to soldering, texturing and polishing. You'll also be able to attach a gemstone to one of the rings (a selection of gemstones are available to choose from and included in the cost (eg. rose quartz, malachite, blue agate, onyx etc). However, you can also upgrade at an additional cost on the day to a different gemstone such as Lapis Lazuli, garnet, turquoise, amythest etc).


    This fun craft workshop is ideal for jewellery making newbies but also welcomes all abilities to come and get creative with silver. Along the way, your friendly teacher will guide and support you as you unleash your inner crafter!


    At the end of the class, you'll have a set of three bespoke silver stacking rings to cherish and wear! You'll head home with your beautiful creations, along with the skills and confidence to make more.


    A short distance away from St. Ives there is free parking available on my driveway.
