Who is this course for?
In this workshop you will produce a silver bangle as well as one made from copper or brass. Under guidance of silversmith Kate Hunter-Parker, you will learn the traditional silversmithing processes from measuring and cutting your silver, to annealing, forming, soldering and texturing. You will then clean up and polish your unique bangles.

This is a 3 hour course suitable for all learners but some dexterity would be a benefit.
