Course Overview

Fusion Welding Jewellery Course

This course introduces students to fusion welding through the most widely recognised form of this technique; granulation. We then move on to working with sheet, wire, tube and off cuts to create new surface textures.

We complete the course by making a piece of jewellery to your own design using your new skills.

What is fusion welding?

Fusion welding is the connecting of metals where they touch. This is achieved by heating the metals to a molten state. The presence of copper and carbon reduces the melting temperature of the metal at the contact point so it can fuse, whilst the main body of the joining pieces remain solid.

  • 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.
