Jewellery and Silversmithing at The Precious Metals Workshop

The Precious Metals Workshop is Scotland’s leading educational and resource workshop for jewellers and silversmiths. We provide bench space and tools for up to 30 resident jewellers and silversmiths. There are three workshops that offer a range of desks and affordability and all come with lockable storage.

The PMW also offers a three-tiered membership facility on a monthly and annual pay-as-you-go basis for access to the main workshop. Membership times are Monday-Friday, 10:00am until 5:00pm, but access is restricted during Summer School.

With three terms and a Summer School each year, there is a huge range of classes and workshops for everyone. From a ten week evening program to drop-in technique sessions and one day weekend workshops, we really do have something for everyone.

Starting in January 2017, Pliers (the educational and not-for-profit social enterprise arm to the Precious Metals Workshop) will run courses throughout the year at the PMW over a three, ten week term in alignment with the UK’s academic timetable. We run three, ten week terms each year in alignment with the UK schools term times, linking up the half terms. Our Evening classes and weekend workshops aim to have something for everyone and for all levels of skills. Towards the end of 2017, we intend to launch an assisted places scheme, whereby learners who couldn’t otherwise afford to sign up to courses can apply for discounted places. Please see our Terms & Conditions when booking any course.
