Silver Jewellery Morning Class

Class Overview

Our Silver Jewellery Morning 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 Schedule

Whilst we cautiously emerge from lockdown we will be running shorter terms of 3 – 4 weeks.

Silver Jewellery Class 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.

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.

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.

It is extremely important we all follow the guidelines set out here to minimise the risk to all of us and ensure the school can remain open.

  • You test positive for Covid-19.
  • You feel at all unwell.
  • You have been abroad (to any country) 7 days prior to your class.

  • If you test positive for Covid-19 after attending a class please notify the school as soon as possible.
  • Hand washing or sanitising on arrival and throughout your class when necessary.
  • Please wear a face mask in line with current government guidance.
  • Keep all sanitiser sprays and pumps out of the way of naked flames.
  • Clean all shared equipment immediately after use.
  • At the end of your session clean all individual equipment, clean out your skin, (leather under bench ), of metal, blades and plastic and wipe down your chair.
  • Remember to take all your belongings with you when you leave.
  • Leave all unnecessary personal items at home.

You will need to bring

And finally, no kitchen sorry! This means no refreshments or crockery can be offered at the moment, please feel free to bring your own mug, flask of tea, coffee, water etc.
