Basic Silversmithing

Our club offers Basic-level Silversmithing to its club members when a member volunteers for the position of tutor. The main techniques will be taught via a number of set projects.

NOTE: Before club members can commence any silversmithing, they must have undergone the Club Orientation (i.e. an Induction – a workplace health and safety requirement) which is ONLY available on a Tuesday or Thursday night (when the clubhouse is open).

Contact the tutor beforehand to know what to bring, and learn about the fee structure for each workshop.

Several times throughout the year, a visiting creative is invited to present a 6-hour course on an aspect of silversmithing. These are held on the weekend and usually there is a maximum capacity number who can attend.

A club member can now find their own piece of rough, cut and polish it and attend a silversmithing workshop to create the setting.
