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.
Our daytime courses run for 8 weeks with 2½ hour weekly classes with a mid way half term break.
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.
This class is for experienced makers only.
As a student you are responsible for your own safety in the workshop. Please listen to directions 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.
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.
Students are expected to be competent makers and know how to realise their own projects. A class tutor is available in an advisory role to help students achieve their goals.
