During the workshop you will be taught the basic skills of a silversmith - You will learn how to use a piercing saw, create flush joins, use of soldering torch, cleaning up and polishing. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with different finishes, satinising, texturing and stamping to produce your own unique piece of jewellery to take home with you on the day. No experience necessary as full guidance and support is given.
The cost of the workshop is £60.00 which includes all materials and equipment. Light refreshments are also provided.
I am Kirsty Bolam, the artist behind Kirsty Bolam Jewellery. I am a silversmith with over 20 years of experience designing and making silver, gold and stone set jewellery. I was brought up in the Outer Hebrides and it was there where I learnt my trade. Although I have lived in Northumberland for 25 years, the inspiration from Hebridean life, the wild ocean and endless walks in its pebbled beaches has followed me and continues influence my designs today.
My workshop and Studio is in the beautiful setting of Kirkharle Courtyard, just north of Ponteland.
