Create your own design or use one of the Lucy’s Projects designed to explore specific techniques. All  silver solders are free: students supply their own silver, gold and gemstones.

Many students come to the workshop on a regular basis for a half day session weekly or monthly, to develop the skills they have already acquired.  Advanced students visit periodically for a full day or longer, to cover in depth specific techniques such as enamelling, stone setting or etching.
