Silver Chain Bracelet Workshop - Friday 9th February 2024
Learn all the traditional silversmithing and forging techniques you need to create a beautiful chain bracelet!
Each chain starts as a length of silver wire. Coiling the wire creates the links for the bracelet, but as you can choose the size, hammered texture and shape of your links each bracelet is unique!
This workshop is perfect for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session and may choose to make a more complicated chain.
14 to 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.
