Start your jewellery journey with this 4 week beginners course.
Learn how to saw, file, solder and add texture as you create a collection of silver jewellery. Each week we will build on the previous week’s session learning new techniques and gaining confidence. You will have time to work on your own project or refine and add to your portfolio of work in the last session.
Each session lasts 2.5 hours and will run over 4 consecutive weeks – perfect for getting know new people, taking time for yourself and learning something new.
6 – 8.30 pm • Wednesday Evenings • Starting 10th January
Inspire Makers • Falmouth
What you will make:
A pendant, a ring, a bangle and a pair of earrings.
The last session will be planned as the weeks progress.
The price includes silver to make the pieces demonstrated. If you wish to go bigger or chunkier in a session then additional silver can be purchased in the class at cost price by cash or card. Jewellery boxes are also available at cost price too.
Tea/coffee and biscuits included.
During the sessions you can also ask about tools, equipment, suppliers and hallmarking if you wish to continue with what you have learnt outside of the classes.
On completing the course you will then be invited to attend the Maker’s Club once a month. Here, you can ‘rent-a-bench’ to work on your own projects and use all of the tools and equipment.
I have 18 years teaching experience and cannot wait to share my passion for jewellery making with you!
Porth Jewellery’s Laura runs her Beginners Jewellery Course over five weeks. It’s an excellent and fun introduction to working with silver and other metals – wire, sheets, etc. As a qualified teacher, Laura provides well-planned, step-by-step sessions, coupled with one-to-one guidance enabling a move to the next stage – without fear of ‘messing up’.
All equipment and materials are provided, with the option to purchase a little something extra to fulfil any creativity – even coffee and biscuits are available – in a light, comfortable workshop within a beautiful gallery opposite the sea. There’s also half/day courses; great activities if visiting beautiful Cornwall.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the past Wednesday mornings; acquired new skills, met some lovely people – and made some wearable jewellery – my kids love their rings!

I have just finished the 5 week beginners jewellery course, I have enjoyed every second of it making a different piece of jewellery each week to take home. Every week we were shown new techniques and introduced to new tools. I have had the best time learning from Laura who is a fantastic teacher. I cannot wait to book on to more courses and learn to make more beautiful things.

“A great introduction to silver jewellery making. I’ve learnt so many new skills and was able to put my own design ideas into practise so I now have some fabulous pieces of jewellery. Laura is always there to provide guidance and a helping hand so that you always end up with something you will love. Thank you, Laura.”
