Course Overview

In our anticlastic raising workshop you will learn how to raise an anticlastic bangle using a sinusoidal stake. This course will also cover creating anticlastic shapes using doming punches; a technique used to make spinning rings.

When starting out with this technique you will mainly work with round forms. However, once you have mastered these raising techniques you will be able to create more elegant organic shapes to suit your personal style.

To add the finishing touch to your piece you’ll learn how to use a polishing motor to achieve a high shine.

Definition of anti-clastic

“(Of a surface) having a curvature, at a given point and in a particular direction, that is of the opposite sign to the curvature at the point in a perpendicular direction”

Course Start Dates

We update the schedule every 3 months, usually around half term once we have an idea of how many current students wish to continue into the following term. This helps us plan which courses we can run. If you don’t see any dates listed below it’s because there’s nothing in the schedule yet. The best way to find out when courses are updated is to subscribe to our newsletter.

Course fees include solder and saw blades. Metals, findings and a variety of stones are available for purchase at the school or feel free to bring your own to work with.

Workshop Safety

As a student you are responsible for your own safety in the workshop. The most important things to remember are;

  • Please listen to directions from your tutor to ensure you know how to use all the equipment safely and correctly.
  • Do not operate equipment you do not know how to use.
  • Covered footwear is required and absolutely no high heels.
  • Tie back long hair when using motorised equipment.
  • Please respect others and don’t interrupt students who are soldering, using the drill or any other equipment that could create a safety concern if the operator is distracted.
  • Remember to take all your belongings with you when you leave.
  • Please leave all unnecessary personal items at home.

You will need to bring

  • Your own apron, to protect your clothes.
  • Packed lunches are recommended if your class runs for a full day.
