|Weekly Daytime Class|
I have always had a keen interest in design, with a background in Architecture & Fine Art & teaching Resistant Materials at secondary school level. I started making sterling silver jewellery as a hobby initially but quickly became hooked. I love seeing the whole design process through from initial sketched ideas to a beautifully finished piece of jewellery for someone to treasure for many years. My work is currently sold in several galleries and jewellers around the UK and I also sell my work at craft fairs locally in Dorset.
Our silversmith jewellery-making classes are designed to appeal to people of all abilities, from complete beginners to those wanting to brush up on specific skills. I've been running adult silversmith classes for over 7 years, & between myself & my good friends & colleagues Elaine Somerville, Wendy Nutt & Jodie Metcalfe we now run 9 weekly classes (5 daytimes & 4 evenings) each week.
Throughout the year myself, Elaine, Wendy, Jodie & other local, talented jewellers: Caroline Parrott, Grainne Reynolds & Kirsty White offer a wide variety of one-day Saturday workshops. These workshops cover a range of skills including: 'Make a Silver Ring or Bangle', Silver Casting, Anodised Aluminium, Acid Etching, Silver Clay & Enamelling workshops. Please see the photos on the Saturday Workshop Dates page of the website for photos of each of the different workshops & pieces made by students on the day.
