Upcoming Courses

Our day and evening courses are 8 weeks long, when there is a public holiday we usually make up the lost day at the end of the term meaning that there will be 8 classes over 9 weeks.

Silver Jewellery Making NOW ON WEDNESDAY (Day class)

Tutor: Natalie Halley

Enjoy a term of ‘hands on’ creativity with Natalie making silver jewellery on Wednesday mornings. Beginners will start by learning basic jewellery making techniques such as sawing, filing, and soldering, and creating a simple piece of body adornment (for example a ring band). Those with some experience in jewellery making can develop and refine their skills as well as learning new techniques, including various ways of stone setting and metal finishing techniques. You will be guided with patience and through hands-on demonstrations, creating pieces such as rings, earrings, pendants, chains or brooches. All specialist tools and equipment are provided. Classes are on Wednesdays between both 9.30am – 1.00pm and 5.30pm – 8.30pm. All basic materials provided (gem stones will be extra).
