I can't imagine how disappointed you must be feeling! :( I hope next week is better. x
Silver is pretty expensive I guess - better to practice in copper? As long as you are making something it is all good practice!
I would be very disappointed!! I did a 5 week beginner silver course and we used silver the very first week to make simple earrings...we only really used copper for a practice at piercing and soldering one week. Do you mind me asking if you paid to go on this course and if so, how much? I would not be happy if I'd paid a fair whack of money for a silver class (expecting that some of this fee would pay for the silver) and I didn't get to use any.
Silver is expensive to make mistakes with!!Hmm...not selling the intermediate course very well is heGemxxx
Hi Hollybirds, The course was £110 for 10 weeks, and that is suppose to cover £35 of materials. I did think it was good value at the time.I know silver is expensive which is why I wanted to go on the course, I appreciate it is best to practice on copper, and am happy to do so much,but I am feeling I am not moving forward, I had wanted to get the feel of silver or at least see it!! Hopefully it will get moving soon, but I am starting to wish I had spent the money on a good book and materials of my own, or just a day course. Lets hope it gets better....
