Make your own silver spoon caddy whilst trying traditional silversmithing techniques in this private experience with Charlotte, from The Silver Duck.
During your day in Charlotte’s Old Market Manor workshop you'll pierce, forge and form from two separate pieces of metal to create the bowl and handle before soldering them together. With Charlotte’s help, you'll create a design for your spoon, choosing the depth of the bowl and shape of the handle to make it completely unique.
Charlotte is an experienced silversmith and loves sharing her craft in these experiences with people keen to learn more about working with silver. She’ll take you through the making process step by step, teaching each technique along the way. You’ll finish the experience with a beautiful, custom caddy spoon, perfect for tea leaves or coffee grounds.
This is a private experience and you'll have your own fully sanitised workspace. You can bring along a mask to wear if you'd like to.
For Charlotte, it all started when she was given a wire jewellery making kit as a gift. She was already interested in art and design but after creating those jewellery pieces she decided to study for her degree in silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery. Charlotte now makes her work out of her Old Market Manor studio, a space she shares with other creatives from jewellery makers to woodworkers. She's passionate about sharing her craft and giving people a glimpse of the techniques and the time it takes to work with silver. Charlotte’s aim with all her experiences is to allow people to be creative, have fun and go away with a piece they’ll be proud of.View more experiences by The Silver Duck
