Summary

The course structure is designed to give students the knowledge and skills to design and make jewellery from silver and other metals. In Beginners 1 (10 weeks) you will cover techniques such as silver soldering, saw piercing, annealing, and wire and sheet metal forming techniques. Students will also have an introduction to enamelling, make simple jewellery findings and work on their own design project. During Beginners 2 (10 weeks) you will develop and consolidate the skills you have learned in Beginners 1, whilst working on a stone setting and links project. Tamsin has been teaching jewellery design and making since 2003 and has taught in the Stroud Valleys since 2011. She has a passion for working with metals and a belief in the power of art-and-craft skills to empower people. In 2009 Tamsin graduated from the School of Jewellery in Birmingham with an MA in Jewellery Silversmithing and Related Products. As a jeweller, Tamsin uses mainly reclaimed and recycled objects and materials to create one-off pieces of jewellery; she has exhibited in the UK and internationally. Variable silver costs, dependent on projects chosen – the tutor can advise on where to buy. As the course progresses you may wish to purchase a basic set of tools – the tutor can advise on this.

What do I need to join?

No experience is necessary for this course.

How will I know how I am doing?

Students learn through hands-on, practical projects, with feedback from the tutor. A notebook or sketchbook is useful for recording ideas and designs, and there will be access to specialist books for design research. Students have the opportunity to take part in the end-of-year exhibition and gain feedback from other tutors and the public.

What can I do next?

Students can join one of the Intermediate Jewellery courses, where you will develop your own designs with tutor guidance. Students may choose to set up making from their own home/studio.
