Join us for a comprehensive weekly silver jewellery making class suitable for beginners and intermediate makers alike.
You will be part of a small class so that you have time to develop new skills and work on your own individual jewellery project throughout the term. Two highly skilled tutors will be on hand to provide expert tuition and encouragement. The course is structured so that you will finish the term with a completed piece of jewellery and a collection of samples in silver and copper showing all the amazing skills you have learned. With just a small investment in some basic tools many of the techniques we teach can be done at home making the course the perfect kick-start to your jewellery making journey.
We will cover a wide range off basic jewellery making techniques such as saw piercing, soldering and applying textures to the metal. As you progress we will begin to introduce more specialised processes such as sand casting, jesmonite and keum-boo. Your expert tutors will demonstrate a whole host of new techniques as your individual interests and jewellery projects begin to emerge.
