Jewellery and Metals (Summer School)

Course overview

The course is for beginners and experienced students.

You can choose to make any type of metal jewellery you wish, such as rings, earrings, bracelets or necklaces. You will work at your own pace with individual guidance from the tutor in a well-equipped open workshop.

Please note: This course does not run during the half term/end of term breaks.

You learn the basic skills to make jewellery and gradually build up your practical knowledge and confidence through workshop practice.

As a beginner, you learn basic techniques during a set ring-making project. This is followed by further development of skills appropriate to your own designs.

  • cutting and sawing
  • annealling
  • soldering
  • texturing

You will receive individual feedback and discussion about your work during each session.
