Event Details

This one-day intensive jewellery making course is a great introduction if you’d like to see if you enjoy working with metal.

Suitable for absolute beginners, we’ve kept the class small and limited to 6 students, so you get the attention you deserve.

You’ll learn the techniques of traditional jewellery making, such as annealing, pickling, cutting, forming, cold joining, jump ring making, and texturing, and walk away with a beautiful sterling silver pendant or earrings.

Experiment and sample with copper or brass before using these new skills to make a sterling silver piece of jewellery.

Students can work from a basic template that can be modified to reflect their own creative style or bring their own design ideas.

ALL TOOLS AND MATERIALS PROVIDED

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Metal Cutting – How to cut metal using professional jewellery saw frames and blades.
  • Texturing and stamping – you’ll have fun learning a couple of ways to texture your jewellery, or stamp with letters
