In the last few weeks, so many of our lovely alumni have been in touch. It has been heartwarming and empowering to hear how SilverHub has played a role in their creative journey.
Heidi Korkala was a student at SilverHub. She is currently studying Jewellery Design and Silversmithing at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee.
"When I started attending the evening classes I had no experience at all so I started from bare basics. Throughout the classes, I became more and more confident in my technical skills and I realised that I might just have a future in this. I also became more aware of the contextual part of jewellery design, I went from wanting to make pretty things to more meaningful jewellery.
I liked how personalised the learning was and how enthusiastic and attentive the tutors are. They encourage you to find your style but also to think outside the box and push your ideas further. Lisa and Jess always see the potential in students and they always encouraged me even when I wanted to give up."
