About this course

Learn how to design and make individual, professionally finished jewellery. Beginners will follow suitable projects to cover the basic skills you will need to know to start making your own jewellery. Group and individual tuition will be given in techniques such as piercing, filing, shaping and forming, soldering, texturing and polishing.

By the end of this course you should be able to:
Select and use the correct tools and equipment for specific processes.
Use a range of jewellery making skills, e.g. piercing, filing, shaping, forming, soldering and polishing.
Work to relevant Health and Safety guidelines.

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. There are no formal exams or tests to complete on this course.

What do I need to bring with me?

It is advisable to wear old clothing or bring an apron or lab coat, long hair must be tied back and open toe shoes must not be worn. Costs vary according to what you are making. Silver for a plain ring would cost approximately £20. Do not buy anything especially for the course before the first session. Please bring along anything you already have that you think would be useful to the first session.

What can I do next?

Further Jewellery courses or specific project classes such as 'Make a Ring'.

What do I need to join the course

This is a beginners course for those new to the subject with little or no previous experience. It is not suitable for experience students.
It is important to note that craft courses are practical and require a degree of manual dexterity. If you need to bring a carer with you, or be accompanied by another person, please ask to speak to the programme manager before you enrol.
