Silver Jewellery Classes in Dorset

I have been teaching Silver Jewellery making classes for over ten years now, mainly to adults, but have taught short courses at Canford School, near Wimborne previously.  I love to see students work progress, from the very beginnings watching students learn to solder or set stones for the very first time, to exploring new processes and developing their own style.

Having run the Silver Jewellery evening Short Course at the Arts University in Bournemouth and also Silver Jewellery, Wax Carving for casting and Gemmology classes at Walford Mill Crafts where I previously had a studio, for many years, now, being located in West Dorset, I run a new Silver Jewellery making class at Dorset Centre for the Creative Arts in Poundbury, near Dorchester in Dorset. In the daytime and also evenings on Mondays from 9.30-1.30 and 6-9pm, and on Thursdays from 10-4, then 6-9pm.  Bookings are made through this link:

In the new year I will also be teaching weekly classes at White Stones Studios on Portland.  To find out more and register go to;

I can also offer private ‘one-to-one’ jewellery classes tailored to what you want to learn.  Or Jewellery retreats. Please email for more details.

Also in the New Year I will be running two one-day workshops at Sculpture by the Lakes.  Please see this link for more details.

Students Work

When I teach, I generally try not to have more than six students in a class, this allows a good level of contact time with everyone.  I tend not to be too prescriptive when teaching.  I like to let students find their own way and explore their own individual creative ideas, guiding them through each process to be learnt.

This is a piece made by one of my Students.  A silver fully articulated bracelet with rutilated quartz beads. This student made earrings and a pendant to add to this collection.
