Forge a Silver Bangle Workshop

Learn the basics of silver-smithing from sawing, soldering, filing, hammering and polishing to create your own beautiful, handmade silver Bangle in just 4 hours!

Let your personality shine with our Forge a Silver Bangle Workshop.

Every bangle is individual, you can choose from different textures – or combine them to make it even more unique! You even get to choose the finish you want – matt or shiny.

The result is a stunning handmade gift for yourself or a loved one! Not to mention learning the basics of an incredible, ancient craft.

Many of our Silver Works class goers have discovered a new hobby and love of the craft, and have signed up to our longer part time courses, to deepen their knowledge.

Benefits of Learning Jewellery Making Skills

There are many benefits to learning a new skill in general, but learning how to make jewellery specifically has its own benefits such as:

– Helps you start a new hobby and learn a highly skilled trade
– Connect back in with your creative side
– Improves focus and problem solving skills
– Unique and personalised gifts are a guarantee for your loved ones
– Working with your hands relaxes you
– There are so many different ways to do everything so you’ll have lots of fun exploring what works best for you!

What will I learn

You will learn the basics of goldsmithing, this includes:

– How to pierce ( saw ) a piece of 3mm sterling silver
– How to form a bangle using pliers
– You will watch it being soldered whilst being explained the process by your teacher
– How to file the bangle using different size hand files
– How to texture the bangle using a planishing hammer- choose from a few finishing options
– You will watch it being polished on a polishing motor to your chosen finish – matt or shiny!

“My daughter-in-law was visiting, and we had a lovely time making matching silver rings. The 2-hour class was reasonably priced and the sterling silver ring was a perfect memento of our time together. Highly recommended! We both went back to the shop (The Collective) to buy some of their irresistible jewellery.”
