Beginners Silversmithing Course B – Two 4-hour sessions
This course builds on the skills gained in Course A and is an ideal stepping stone to prepare for our more advanced stone setting courses.
Stone Setting Courses – Two 4-hour sessions

You must have completed our beginners silversmithing courses before the stone setting courses as each course builds on skills learnt in the preceding one. These courses are designed to be completed in order.
If you have experience in stone setting from another learning centre, please contact us before booking as we will need to review the suitability of our courses for you.
