Summary

Students will develop their own designs and jewellery pieces with tutor guidance. The tutor will teach skills individually and in groups to enable students to develop skills according to their own design requirements. Examples of this could be surface pattern or metal forming techniques, or cold connections. There will be the opportunity to explore more complex techniques, such as claw settings, press forming, casting and enamelling techniques. Incorporating non-traditional materials is also encouraged. 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.

What do I need to join?

Students are expected to complete Beginners 1 and 2 or equivalent before joining the Intermediate 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 continue to re-enrol on one of the Intermediate courses on a termly or yearly basis or at a summer school (the tutor can give you information about this). Students may choose to set up making from their own home/studio.
