Silver Spoon Workshop with Louise Mary

£130.00

Silver Spoon Workshop with Louise Mary at Metamorphic Charm

Friday 26th July 2024

10am – 4pm

£130 per person

Spend a day in the studio getting creative making stunning silver spoons.

On this one day course you will receive step-by-step tuition in a friendly, relaxed environment. Louise will teach you how to create a spoon bowl and handle, and how to join them together. She will also help you to develop a unique design for your spoon, which you can personalise by adding stamped letters and textures with hammers and the rolling mill.

You will learn traditional silversmithing skills, including how to cut, file, form, solder and polish silver to create your silver spoon.

You will make and finish at least one silver spoon on this course.

WHAT IS INCLUDED:

The workshop price includes up to 20g of silver to use to make your silver spoon. Additional silver, if you require it, is available to purchase from your tutor on the day at £1.50 per gram.

Tea and coffee provided. There will be a break halfway through the day for lunch, which is not included.  

WORKSHOP TIME:

10am - 4pm

YOUR TUTOR: LOUISE MARY

Louise has been working as a jeweller and silversmith since 2005, and began teaching early on as a means to support her practice, initially teaching an evening class at Hereford College of Art. Louise is also the author of two books ('Making Silver Jewellery' and 'Fold Forming for Jewellers and Metalsmiths’) and aims to inspire her students to fall in love with this special craft just as she did when she first started silversmithing.  

WHO CAN ATTEND:

All levels of ability including complete beginners. Anyone is welcome to take part so long as they are aged over 18 (or over 14 if accompanied by an adult).

Gift cards cannot be used as payment for this workshop, which is run by a guest tutor.
