For those with some experience in jewellery making, this 4 week course covers tools, finishes and an introduction to silver clay.

The four sessions focus on learning new skills that you can incorporate into your own jewellery making.  There is time for you to turn some of your work into finished items of jewellery but the focus will be on learning new tools and techniques rather than making finished pieces of jewellery.  You can attend an additional Maker’s Club session at a reduced rate if you wish to finish off pieces using the studio tools.*

Each session lasts 2.5 hours and will run over 4 consecutive weeks – perfect for getting know new people, taking time for yourself and learning something new.

During the sessions you can also ask about tools, equipment, suppliers and hallmarking if you wish to continue with what you have learnt outside of the classes. I have 19 years teaching experience and cannot wait to share my passion for jewellery making with you!

On completing the course you will then be able to access the Maker’s Club once a month.  Here, you can ‘rent-a-bench’ to work on your own projects and use all of the tools and equipment you have learnt in the course.  Your first session, if used within 4 months, will be at a discounted rate.

* Please note, if you are not confident soldering or know how to use the basic workshop tools then you may need to do an additional session before you can join the Maker’s Club.
