An ideal course for those taking their first steps in jewellery-making or returning students looking to refresh existing knowledge.
Students will be introduced to the traditional techniques and tools used to make jewellery, with demonstrations and supportive guidance to instil confidence. The basic techniques of saw-piercing, soldering and roll printing will be covered, with the additional option to look at fold forming. We will use copper initially (which has similar properties to silver), before progressing to using silver to create a finished piece or collection of work. The week is designed to be suitable for students of all abilities. The format is as flexible as possible, with one-to-one teaching allowing students to work on their own projects and build their skills as required. Copper and a limited amount of silver will be provided. Extra silver can be purchased at cost if needed.
