Workshop Silver
Jewellery making and design course
1, 2 and 3 day

Travelling in Koh Phangan wouldn’t be complete without visiting Workshop Silver – It’s not just to buy the silver jewellery which is handmade in our workshop on the island but to make the jewellery yourself on our 1, 2 or 3 day courses. Guided by us you can make earrings, rings and pendants- the perfect souvenir of Koh Phangan uniquely made by yourself!

Perhaps you are tired of the commercialized silver jewellery sold everywhere or you would like to explore your creative side. At workshop silver we offer 1, 2 and 3 day courses no previous experience is necessary and in fact many of today’s jewellers were trained in other disciplines or had no formal training at all – jewellery remains one of the few fields in which an individual, working alone and with limited facilities, can make a significant contribution – all it takes is commitment practice and perseverance.
The day starts at 10am and continues until 5pm – we collect you from your resort and after the course (leaving with a professionally finished piece of jewellery created and made by you) drop you back to your resort.
