ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join Teresa Crickmar for a twelve-week small-scale silversmithing course that offers everything for a beginner to learn the basics. This is a dedicated course just for silversmithing techniques. It runs for twelve weeks with a break mid-way for half term. The first half of the course will concentrate on acquiring basic skills which will then lead on to a more creative six weeks where you will be encouraged to find your own designs and projects.

If you would like to learn how to cut, form and texture metal to make stunning objects, other than jewellery (but not always), then this is the course for you. We will explore forging, doming, hammering, soldering and mark making. The items you might like to make could include candlesticks, spoons, dishes, cups and boxes. There are a limited number of spaces so please do get in touch to reserve your bench.

Teresa is a sought-after tutor. She creates a fun, relaxed atmosphere to learn in and oozes positivity. Learners join her classes a little unsure and sometimes not at all confident but quickly catch the bug with her ample enthusiasm for jewellery making. You will gain the skills to make beautiful, professional-looking work that will receive lots of compliments.

Teresa believes the design element of making should be as important as the piece itself and so if you have ideas, or are inspired by others work please share this before you start so that she can adjust the course content. Small tailored courses give you just what you want. Teresa will give you an idea of the materials and processes needed right from the outset before you even start making!

Her work can be seen in Primavera Gallery, Cambridge.. She shares her time between being a mother, wife, cockerpoo mummy, home renovator, a Reiki practitioner, adult education tutor and a jewellery designer/maker.

This 35-hour course runs for three hours per week for fourteen weeks with a maximum class size of five.
