There were no silver smithing studios or classes in Metro Manila when I first started looking in 2014.
So I’m grateful – really I am – that when I started looking again, I actually found a silver smithing class in Metro Manila.
There is now one option for us desperate, passionate silversmiths instead of none, although of course the hours long drive to get to Soul Flower’s does kind of drive you nuts by the time you get there.
The only metal working class in Metro Manila is tucked into a 18 square meter room on Malingap Street in Diliman’s Teacher’s Village and is run by Soul Flower, a partnership between 2 friends.
They offer beginner, intermediate and advanced classes for silversmithing as well as other craft classes.
I’ve trained as a metalsmith for a year aborad, and I do so love the work. I haven’t had a chance to get back to it since I’ve been preoccupied with other things, and have only lately started picking it up.
Will let you know how it goes.
