Class Overview

Silver Jewellery Afternoon Class

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.

Class Materials

Silver Jewellery Afternoon Class

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.

Class Ability Level

This class is for experienced makers only.

All students attending classes or workshops at Kingham Jewellery School must be 18 or over, unless otherwise stated in the course information.

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.
  • Your own dust mask, for using the polisher.
  • Your own eye protection for drilling and polishing.

Please do not attend the workshop if

  • You test positive for Covid-19.
  • You feel unwell.

 

A more comprehensive guide to workshop safety can be found in our Workshop Guidelines pdf.
