This is a perfect introductory to Jewellery making and design for anyone with a creative spark and wanting to learn the basics in a day. And if you like it then you could continue onto one of our 10wk courses.
Students will learn how to saw pierce, solder, form, texture and finish a piece. Stone setting is optional (please let us know in advance if you would rather not set a stone) colour can be added with enamel. You are welcome to bring a pebble, sea glass or unusual found treasure to set onto a pendant!
With all of the beautiful designs from established jewellers on display in the gallery below, you will be constantly given examples of what you have learnt or are being taught putting learning into context. We shall constantly re-cap at every stage.
Before the course we give you examples of pendant shapes that you can choose to work with on the day – piercing it out, texturising, shaping and setting a stone or adding some extra details like motifs, silver balls or enamel.
Health and safety is covered and each student shall be emailed a week or so before the course start date to give a reminder and further details about the course.
See examples of stacking rings students made on the ‘taster day’ here on our facebook page
Perfect for a special BIRTHDAY, HEN day or CHRISTMAS gift!
There are plenty of tasty eateries for lunch near the gallery.
We don’t take bookings through the website as we prefer to discuss your needs with you, and then we can match you to the most suitable course. We can take your deposit to secure your place at the same time.
We do need 4 people to run this course, so if you have friends or family that can make up the numbers then fantastic, otherwise we can advertise for more people to join.
