What you'll do

Whether you want to brush up on previous experience or are completely new you will leave this course having completed a project from start to finish. If you would like to try silversmithing I will guide you through making either a Scottish whiskey tumbler, a spoon or a round pill box. Or if you have a jewellery idea or design that you would like to make I will be able to help you achieve this. I have a fully kitted out workshop where you will be able to use the tools that you require to complete your project with me on hand to help you. The processes available are: -Forging (hammering) metal sheet to shape -Soldering and annealing -Milling -Chasing and Repousse -Stone setting -Polishing

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 18 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Silversmithing is a pretty clean and safe practise, but do bring clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
