Our Silver Jewellery Afternoon Class is for competent students with experience of jewellery making. Students are expected to be confident working on their own jewellery designs and know their way around a jewellery workshop, however, Nerissa is available in class to offer advice to help resolve any design and construction issues students may encounter.
This class is useful if you’re looking to work on your own designs and need access to workshop facilities. Prior to starting the class it’s worth having an idea for a project you wish to work on to get the most out of your time in the workshop.
The workshop is extremely well equipped with access to a rolling mill, draw plates, various mandrills and stakes. Each workstation has its own tool box with space for social distancing.
This class is not a taught class with projects to follow, so if you would like to learn new jewellery techniques please browse our current course list where we have courses to suit beginners through to advanced makers.
This course is for experienced makers only. Students should have an intermediate to advanced level of skill and know their way around a jewellery workshop. If you are new to Kingham Jewellery School please contact us before booking so we can make sure the course is right for you.
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.
Students usually work in silver but may wish to add gold elements into their designs. If a student would like to work in gold they must purchase their own gold and gold solder. We do not carry gold at the workshop, however, we can order gold in advance of a term. Please contact us if you do intend to order gold from us.
As a student you are responsible for your own safety in the workshop. The most important things to remember are;
