About the Tutor
I have always had a love of jewellery and all things sparkly and a fascination for how pieces are made and put together.
I started silversmithing as a hobby in the late 1990’s at Filton College in Bristol, where I learnt basic silversmith skills which I have developed over the years.
After moving to Suffolk in 2001 I discovered silver clay and have enjoyed working with this amazing product so much over the years that in 2015 I decided on a major life change, moving from a long term career in the health service to follow my passion for jewellery making and teaching.
What you will need to bring
All materials and equipment are supplied.
Natural items from which to take moulds will be supplied by Helen, but you are welcome to bring your own very small pieces.
