Learn and develop the essential foundational skills of traditional silversmithing in this slower-paced course.

Over the 6 weeks, the instructor will guide you through the fundamental skills of sawing, drilling, forming, filing, sanding, several soldering techniques, various ways of polishing and finishing, and making your own findings! There will be plenty of time to practice this wide array of techniques to let them sink in.

You will learn the skills to enable you to design and fabricate a ring, pendant or pair of earrings during the last two classes of the course which you, of course, get to keep! In addition to the final project of your own design, there are a couple of projects that include a textured sterling silver ring band, and samples from the various techniques learned.

This is an extended in-depth course, perfect for the beginner wishing to develop a solid foundation of the tools and techniques of silversmithing.

- This course is a prerequisite for more advanced classes and workshops.
- Stone Setting is not covered in this course, but is covered in the Stone Setting workshop, or the Intermediate Silversmithing Course.
- Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible for open-studio bench rental.
