Silverworks is part of The Collective shop on Drury Street in Dublin 2. They offer a range of courses in jewellery making for beginners and the more experienced alike. For the visitor, the 2 hour classes are ideal for making memories and creating your own sterling silver memento of your time in Dublin. Prices are reasonable and classes are kept small, with a mix of locals and visitors.
In the Forge a Silver Ring taster class, every ring is individual. You can choose from three different hammered textures, combining them in your own way, with a matte or shiny finish. In another short class, you learn the ten step process to make a silver charm, or pendant. Choose from eight different pendant shapes and add your initial. The result is a stunning handmade gift for yourself or a loved one.
Many who participate in the Forge a Silver Ring class discover a new hobby and a love of this ancient craft. Silverworks provides longer courses for those who wish to learn some advanced techniques like gem setting, wax carving and more. Silverworks also hosts girls' nights, team building and Christmas parties. They can even help you create your own engagement or wedding ring. If you prefer gold, you can request that in advance.
All tools and equipment, drills and aprons are provided for the duration of the course.
Tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits are available.
