We know that starting a Jewellery Making class can be a daunting experience for some. It can help to know exactly what to expect before you decide to book.

Here are some tips to help make your jewellery making experience at Silver Works the best it can be.

How do I know which class is right for me?

Our no. 1 advice is to have a look at our full list of classes and courses before you book.

Decide what it is you’d like to get out of your visit to Silver Works – are you looking for a one-off creative activity for yourself and a friend or perhaps you are serious about your jewellery making skills and want something more advanced?

Every course on our site has its own thorough description and includes a FAQ section to help you understand exactly what to expect from each class or course.

Which classes are best for advanced jewellery making skills?

For those seeking to deepen their knowledge of jewellery making skills, we recommend our longer part-time courses such as our 5 week Introduction to Jewellery Making Course, our 9 week Design and Make Tuesdays or our Weekend Wax Carving Course.

These course are designed to teach some of the more intricate processes of jewellery making with guidance and support from our experienced teachers who specialise in specific techniques.

Which classes are best for a fun one-off activity?

If you’re looking for something more short term – perhaps something a bit different for a friend’s birthday or maybe a fun date night experience, we recommend our Forge a Ring Classes. These 2 hour classes run frequently throughout the week so booking a time and day that suits you is never a problem.

In these popular classes, you will learn the basics of an incredible ancient skill plus you walk away with a stunning handmade ring for yourself or a friend. The best part is, you don’t need to bring a thing with you. Aprons are provided along with complimentary tea,  coffee and chocolate nibbles.

These classes can be a great way to meet new people or if you have a team building event in mind, classes can be booked for as many as 12 people.

Can I keep the jewellery I make in class?

A question we’re often asked is, do I get to take home the jewellery I make in class? And the answer is YES! You can definitely take your masterpiece away with you to show off to the world.

*Please note Some classes may have an added charge for certain materials depending on what you choose to make.

Our final tip for those with questions about our classes is – just ask us! Our friendly team of experts will be happy to answer each and every question you may have about your specific class or concern.
