Jewellery & Silversmithing
We (normally!) have various jewellery options throughout the year, each specialising in certain techniques or materials.
Currently some classes are on hold but more to come later in 2021!
Silver Clay Jewellery
Silver clay is an amazing, tactile medium which uses recycled silver and this workshop is perfect for beginners. Guided by jewellery designer/maker Rebecca Lucy, this is your chance to escape from the outside world and get creative in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Over the course of this evening workshop you'll learn how to shape and add texture to the silver, and fire and finish your pieces.
Two different options are available - Make a Fine Silver Pendant & Capturing Nature in Silver.
All materials & tools provided.
Tuesdays 25th May & 1st June 7-9pm
Thursdays 3rd & 10th June 7-9pm
Silversmithing Classes UPDATE
La Vidalerie are based in France and the current uncertainty with travel means all these classes have now been cancelled and students refunded. This is heartbreaking for all involved and we very much hope to welcome them later in 2021 when life is more predictable.
