Melbourne Polytechnic's Silversmithing short course has been designed for participants to develop general silversmithing skills. At the end of the course, students will have raised a bowl and forged a spoon in copper, enabling the student to go on to design and make vessels and smaller pieces in precious and base metals.
Course Code: SMM003
This course is ideal for those wishing to explore forging and raising techniques associated with silversmithing. It will present a range of individual silversmithing subjects in response to participant interest and need. It would also be of benefit for those who have knowledge of these techniques and would like to explore them further.
The projects can be worked through by each student at their own pace.
At the end of the course, participants will have skills in silversmithing that will enable them to design and produce vessels, objects and other utensils in base or precious metal.
Materials: Copper for projects will be provided and all tools will be supplied. Bringing along a sketch book or visual diary would be of benefit.
Total hours: 24
Sessions: 8 x 3 hours
