Join us for our Spring term starting on the 12th of January and running until the 30th of March. This is a comprehensive course covering all aspects of the art of jewellery making, suitable for both beginners and more experienced students who wish to refine their skills. A small class size enables each student to work on sustained projects throughout the term with assistance from a highly experienced tutor. All basic jewellery techniques are covered: piercing, soldering and applying texture to the metal. In addition, a selection of more specialised processes such as sand casting, resin, keum-boo and stone setting can be taught throughout the course, as students’ individual interests and project requirements emerge. All materials are included, with the exception of silver, which can be purchased at cost from the School. 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.
Classes run from 7-9pm and refreshments are provided. There will be a half term break on the 16th of February
