Raising a bowl
We have mixed courses and don't split techniques into different days, this gives you a chance to see others learning new things and makes life more interesting.
Beginners will be instructed in techniques including; hollowing, sinking, raising, planishing, seaming, soldering and polishing. Ian will take you through all the stages. From your initial idea to a finished product using demonstrations and safe workshop practice, ending with a completed article to take home and treasure for years to come.
Excellent workshop facilities enable students more experienced in silversmithing to work on advanced projects and benefit from Ian's wide knowledge of the craft.
There are lots of things to learn but below are a few common things that students might come to try for the first time.
