Make a solid sterling silver spoon with master silver smith, Wayne Guest at Studio in the Woods.
Wayne Guest’s experience as an educator and master silversmith working with silver and non-precious metals spans well over 30 years. He has exhibited widely, internationally and Australia in over forty exhibitions and has taught silver smithing for more than twenty years at Monash and RMIT Universities. His professional practice attracts commissions ranging from specialised private and church commissions to corporate boardroom centre-pieces. Wayne’s significant contribution to Australian craft is reflected in the representation of his work in numerous public collections most notably the Australian National Gallery, Canberra. The Rusden Foundation Award and a grant from the Australia Council for the Arts are endorsement to Wayne’s status within the contemporary Australian silver smithing domain. Wayne is particularly well known for his large scale, beautiful and technically accomplished hollow ware and like his current work combines silver with stainless steel and copper to create stunning, functional tableware.
In this 2 day workshop Wayne Guest will demonstrate traditional forging, sinking and surface finishing techniques and show you how to work a solid sterling silver bar into a beautifully refined silver spoon.
