Pierced Spoon Caddy
What is a Silversmith?
People often get confused between a jeweller and a silversmith. As the name implies, a jeweller designs and creates all things jewellery related, but a silversmith is a metalworker who crafts objects, tableware, cutlery and vessels from silver or other precious metals - E.g vases, containers, bowls, wine coasters candlestick holders and cocktail stirrers.
Intermediate and above. Suitable for those who have good piercing skills
All ages welcome. You are never too old to learn a new skill.
The aim of this class is to give you the opportunity to experiment with silver ware, by making a pierced ( cut out) spoon caddy.
We realise that sterling silver is very expensive, so for this this class you will pierce ( cut out), shape and dome a spoon caddy in brass or brass - however if you'd like to do it in silver, you can either supply your own silver, or contact Tracy to purchase silver on the day.
You will pierce out your chosen design - either your own, or we have a couple of design sketches which you could choose from.
Depending on your piercing skills, these designs can be as simple or as complex as you like.
