The course is designed for beginners and will introduce students to many of the traditional skills of jewellery making. The afternoon class is slightly longer than our evening classes allowing students to progress further in a shorter period of time.
About the course:
You will learn all basic jewellery techniques such as piercing, soldering, and applying texture to the metal. The first 4-5 weeks are reserved for structured tuition where you begin the learn the building blocks that will allow you to progress onto more complicated designs. The second part of the course will allow students more freedom to develop their own projects and jewellery designs with the support of our teaching staff. The small class size enables each student to work on an individual sustained projects with assistance from highly skilled tutors to provide expert one-to-one tuition.
In our jewellery making class, we provide all the tools and materials you will need for your projects. Silver (and gold!) is not included but can be purchased at cost from the School. After a few classes, many students become addicted to jewellery making and want to work at home – we can help you get started with advice and our amazing toolkits!
The course is structured so that each student will finish the term with a piece or collection of jewellery and having added to their knowledge of jewellery making.
We’ve been working hard to reconfigure our studio for a safe return to studying. We are adhering to the government guidelines and our Risk Assessment is available in the Resource section of our website. We have developed new protocols for students and staff to adhere to which will be emailed to all students before their first class.
