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.

Our Evening classes and weekend workshops aim to have something for everyone and for all levels of skills. Please see the Terms & Conditions when booking any course via
