Silver Jewellery Evening Class

Explore your own ideas and develop design skills on our jewellery evening class

This evening class is suitable for Improvers through to Advanced makers only.

Students who are comfortable and know their way around a jewellery workshop are free to work on self directed projects. Students should be familiar with designing jewellery and have the required skills to work on their chosen pieces. The class tutor is also available to offer support and guidance if required to help students achieve their goals. This provides an excellent opportunity for students to explore their own ideas while developing design skills. Students are encouraged to discuss their proposed designs and ideas with the class tutor who will suggest various fabrication methods necessary to bring their designs to life. Students are free to work on multiple jewellery projects within a term, project timescales are generally determined by complexity of the piece of jewellery.

  • 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.
