Course Overview

Our Silver Jewellery Evening class can accommodate Improvers through to advanced makers only.

For beginners interested in evening classes we offer a specific Beginner Silver Jewellery evening course.

Enrolling as an Improver

We recommend that you follow a series of set projects to build your skills. These projects can be tailored to suit your taste along with the techniques you are looking to improve.

Enrolling as an Advanced maker

Students that have attained a level of proficiency can work on self directed projects with support from the class tutor. This gives you the opportunity to explore your own ideas whilst developing your design skills. Your tutor will discuss your designs with you then go through the various fabrication methods required to bring them to life. Students are free to work on multiple projects within a term, project timeframes are generally determined by the complexity of your piece.

Course Schedule

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 5 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.

Course Materials

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.

If a student wishes to work in gold they must purchase their own gold & gold solder. We do not carry gold at the workshop, however we can order gold in advance of a term if prearranged with staff.

Course Ability Level

This course is for experienced makers only with an intermediate to advanced level of competence. If you are new to Kingham Jewellery School please contact us for a skill level assessment.

Workshop Safety

As a student you are responsible for your own safety in the workshop. Please listen to direction to ensure you know how to use all the equipment correctly. To ensure your safety do not operate equipment you do not know how to use. Please ensure you have covered footwear and no high heels. 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.

Special arrangements for Covid-19

We have introduced a few new guidelines to make sure the workshop is clean and safe for everyone to use.
