Summary

This course will allow you to explore a contemporary approach to jewellery making using both traditional and alternative materials and techniques

About the Course

This 12 week course will encourage a contemporary approach to jewellery making using both traditional and alternative materials and techniques. Students can choose to work on a series of set briefs or on individually negotiated projects

What will I learn?

The course covers techniques including: silver soldering, saw piercing, surface texturing, forming, annealing, wire and sheet metal techniques, and making fittings and findings. The course will also cover the use of alternative materials such as wood, paper and plastics. Students will also have an opportunity to work with contemporary enamelling techniques

How will the course be delivered?

Each new technique or project will be introduced via a series of practical demonstration, followed by hands on practical work. The tutor will provide regular feedback and one to one technical advice

Do I need any experience?

This course is suitable for students with no previous experience but would also suit intermediate and advanced students who want to build on their existing skill base

What do I need to bring to my first class?

The studio is well equipped and all necessary tools will be provided but students might like to bring their own tools if they have them. Base metal will be provided free of charge. A notebook or sketchbook would be useful

Are there any extra costs?

Some materials will be supplied. If students wish to work with silver they will be expected to order and pay for this as required. The tutor will be able to advise
