Jewellery and Silversmithing – Monday Afternoon
Students will learn a variety of metalworking skills and processes enabling them to design and make their own jewellery and silverware. Suitable for all levels.
New Students will be given an introduction to the workshop and equipment followed by a starter project which covers all the basic skills such as soldering, filing, piercing and polishing. After this it is very flexible. All tools are provided and materials are available to purchase from our on-site shop. Please ensure that long hair is tied back, avoid wearing dangly items of clothing or jewellery, and wear covered shoes (no sandals).
Loucinda is a designer and silversmith, based in the West Berkshire countryside. Using traditional techniques she creates contemporary silverware and jewellery, which is both simple in shape and sensitive in design. Function is a significant part of her work, her ethos is to make pieces that are beautiful to use, as well as look at.
Loucinda has a distinctive style, and has won numerous awards for her designs. She has worked to commission for various clients and exhibited in many well known exhibitions and galleries. Her approach to teaching is relaxed and she adapts each lesson to suit individual needs. Loucinda provides a skills based project during each term and some inspirational briefs should anyone need them. However, she strongly encourages everyone to create their own designs taking them from concept, through development and into a final piece.
