The Precious Metals Workshop facilitates workshop access and bench space for professional jewellers, silversmiths, hobbyists and creative persons in Edinburgh where you are either a maker in residence, member or learner.

Pliers is the not-for-profit and social enterprise educational arm to the Precious Metals Workshop and can be found under the Courses heading. Pliers runs three, ten week terms through the year consisting of evening classes and weekend workshops.

Located in the creative hub of the Out of the Blue Drill Hall, the Precious Metals Workshop was established in 2010 by fine product designer Ian Nicholson. The workshop is a creative community and family of makers, where they share their knowledge and skills while inspiring each other creatively, benefiting from the artisan vibe within the workshop. The PMW provides a large range of specialised equipment to support both our emerging and established makers. For all enquiries, please contact us through the heading above.
