Silversmith: Design & Sculpt

Design and sculpt a silver pendant, or silver earrings, in an afternoon.  This workshop is suitable for those who attended the silversmithing workshop in term 2, as well as for those who have no previous silversmithing experience.  Rob will provide design ideas and practical guidance as you learn to use a variety of silversmithing tools to bend, cut, file, shape, hammer and polish silver to create your own unique piece.  All materials provided.
