Summer School 2024

Our summer schools will launch in April 2024. Each one offers a one week intensive course in silver smithing and jewellery making. With just six places available on each course you'll spend 25 luxurious hours in the workshop, learning, experimenting, making and creating. You'll balance your time between learning new skills and working on your own designs and you are in charge of what you do.
