Create your own jewelry during a summer week in our workshop studio in the old cultural center Kronhusbodarna. A cozy 18th-century environment in the heart of Gothenburg, a stone's throw from restaurants and entertainment.
Silversmith is a much appreciated activity where everyone can participate. The course content is adapted to both beginners and more experienced participants.
The feeling you get when you wear a piece of jewelry you created is unique!
The things that you as a beginner will learn depend entirely on what you want to do. However, the most basic elements are sawing, filing, soldering and forging and shaping the metal. In addition, we also teach stone-setting.
We provide materials and tools. Material cost is added at the end of the course.
Note that if you give away a course, the course participant still has to pay for the material they use at the end of the course.
If you have booked a date and then need to change it to another date, you simply need to contact us so we will write you in at that date, but we ask you to contact you as soon as possible.
You can also contact us to book a time and then pay on site after the course is complete or come to our beautiful studio and buy a gift certificate for a course.
If you want to learn how to design and make your own jewelry, you are welcome to attend one of our courses. You learn basic techniques and then work out your own ideas.
Gold/silver forging is a craft whose traditional techniques have been used and developed over many thousands of years.
With simple methods and tools you can create jewelry in gold/silver.
The courses are for those who enjoy working with your hands and who love the satisfying feeling of making something yourself.
We have many happy stories where course participants found their "thing" and who almost see the silversmith as pure therapy as well as a nice break from their work and everyday life.
We start with a brief review of the workshop and the tools.
Then we go through the different working methods.
In the courses you will learn how to bend, saw, file, solder and forge.
The aim of the course is that you should have designed and created jewelry according to your own idea and design.
No prior knowledge is required.
We mix beginners with more experienced course participants to get good dynamics in the groups.
In this way you can also learn from each other.
All the tools and other materials needed for the courses are in the studio.
Both wire and sheet metal are used.
The material is weighed and billed for after the end of the course. We follow market prices.
