needs. Beginners will be given a set project to introduce the basic
techniques of working with silver. Please note: if you would like
to make small silver items you should book onto a one day
silversmithing workshop (found in the Metalworking category).

Beginners will be encouraged to complete a set project of making a simple ring to introduce the basic techniques of working with silver. What a student can achieve on a day workshop will depend on their experience and the complexity of the idea.
