Multi Week Courses

I run several multi week courses each term which are suitable for total beginners and those with some experience. I tailor the course to meet your skill level and set at least 4 projects a term but usually you’ll get to complete more than 4 pieces. I’ll set the projects before the term starts but these can be discussed on the first session and I’m always happy for you to work on your own projects and offer my support.

April 2022 term:

Over the 11 week course I will gently guide you through traditional jewellery making techniques and some designing methods to enable you to develop your own creations and craft them in silver and use gemstones.

You will leave the course with at least 4 finished pieces of silver jewellery designed and crafted by hand. We will focus on the following skills and techniques but you are also welcome to complete your own projects:

Week 12 Silver rings – Choose from triple linked ring, knot ring or your own design

Week 3-5 Shaped cabochon stone setting (beginners – round or oval cabochon setting)

Week 6-8 TBC – (statement necklace or bracelet with links?)

Week 9-10 TBC – (star or flush setting?)

Week 10-11 Finishing any outstanding projects or work, personal project or joint project which will be decided within the group

Materials will be available to purchase during the course but if you would like to bring your own this information will be sent to you weekly and will depend on your design and choice of stones. Materials will range from (11 weeks £50-£70) depending on your designs and stones of choice.
