Weekend Beginner's

Silversmithing Course


PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS: We have now started running this workshop again, albeit with restricted numbers. There are some dates available for booking via the online calendar but, if you can't see a date that works for you or doesn't have sufficient spaces, please contact us and we will assist you.  Additionally, if you have a voucher that is close to expiring, please get in touch.


During this weekend introductory course you will be given set projects that will develop the skills you need to start working on your own designs. The projects include making a chain bracelet, earrings and a spinning ring. Your tutor, Leah, will be on hand to guide you step by step and ensure you take home jewellery to be proud of. All tools and materials are included in the price.


The course runs from 10:30 until around 16:00 on both the Saturday and Sunday, with an hour’s break for lunch usually starting around 12:00. Available dates are shown in green or amber on the calendar when booking. Please note that the calendar only shows the first day of the course but it does run over the two weekend days.


The sessions are held in the basement of our shop at 59 The Old High Street, Folkestone, CT20 1RN. There are a number of steps to the basement so this may be difficult for those with mobility issues.


There is no vehicle access to The Old High Street during the day but there is a bus stop a short walk away on Tontine Street. The nearest car park, on Tram Road, is also located nearby. The parking fee is £1.20 per hour up to a maximum of £8 for the whole day.
