Basic Techniques in Silversmithing

This class is aimed at complete beginners aged 16-25 and will give you an insight into the traditional and modern techniques of Silversmithing. During the 8-week block, you will have free access to Duff House, Banff to explore and look for inspiration.

At our first class, Historic Environment Scotland staff will bring selected objects from Duff House to the The Smiddy. Over the following weeks, our resident Silversmith will then give you an introduction to traditional technique such as score folding, raising, saw piercing, forging, and press forming. You will produce a range of samples in copper showing each technique over the first 5 weeks whilst learning to use the tools and equipment in our workshop.

The following 3 weeks, you will be encouraged to make your own pill box/ container designs, influenced by objects, textures and the architecture of Duff House. It is advised that you make at least one visit to Duff House in the first 4 weeks to gain inspiration and collect images for designing and making your final pieces.

All tools and materials will be provided as well as refreshments.
