Course Overview

On our Making Hollow Forms Course you will learn how to create nice chunky jewellery that is light and comfortable to wear. The process also allows you to apply various surface decoration such as an etched or rolled pattern.

In the first project you will make 2 hollow formed rings each made slightly differently. One using a flat framework and the other created from domed silver with an inner lining.

In the second part of the term we will look at creating non uniform hollow shapes. This will give you the opportunity to work to your own design.

You will be guided through the fabrication process. This will include how to form, how to texture and various finishing techniques. It’s also a great class for honing your soldering skills.

Course Schedule

Daytime course

To mitigate against possible future Covid-19 disruption we are taking bookings for this course in 1/2 term blocks.

We hope the course will run for 4 consecutive weeks with a class once a week.  However, if we do face disruption this format will give us the flexibility to fit missed classes into the schedule more easily.

You will need to 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.
