BIS Abu Dhabi is very pleased to be hosting a silver jewellery demonstration for parents by British silversmith Don Sankey:
Date: Wednesday 28th September
Venue: Forum 1
The purpose of his visit will be to gauge interest towards holding monthly workshops at BIS Abu Dhabi, from which everyone will leave with a finished outcome in silver. Don will demonstrate the making of a basic silver ring, which will then be taken away by one person attending!
He will make this during an open Q&A session, during which you can see the skills, tools and equipment used. We will then look towards hosting regular workshops at the school, depending on interest.
Don originally trained as an Ecclesiastical Silversmith in Liverpool, England. He is now the only freelance Silversmith in the UAE and spends his time travelling to schools, colleges and private establishments to teach adults and children the skills involved in his craft. When not teaching others, he can be found at his bench working on his own designs.
