This is an ideal course if you are taking your first steps in jewellery making or are a returning student looking to refresh existing knowledge.
Students will be introduced to the traditional techniques and tools used to make jewellery, using demonstrations and structured guidance to instil confidence. The basic techniques of sawing, annealing, filing, texturing and shaping will all be covered with the additional option to look at basic cabochon stone setting. Initially using copper (which has similar properties to silver), students will then progress to using silver to create a finished piece. The week is designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing students to build their skills as well as create a finished piece or collection of jewellery. Copper and a limited amount of silver will be provided. Extra silver can be purchased at cost if needed.
