A love for jewellery has kindled the interest of many into the fashion and crafts sector, with many people these days enrolling into jewellery making classes. There are numerous workshops offering different packages. However, before deciding anything, always ensure that you go the extra miles to make certain whether their promotions correspond to what they offer. Consider taking a class in fun surroundings with light-hearted and open-minded professionals.
Located in a calm atmosphere, full of creativity, the Studio Perak silversmithing class, run by Pak Ketut, the owner and the silversmith expert, specialises in Balinese silversmithing. His knowledge of silver making and designs are inspired by nature and simplicity, as well as the natural shape and properties of semi-precious stones.

The weight of the piece will depend on how big and how thick you choose the material to be. The half-day course fuels your knowledge about the basic skills of silversmithing.
