Jewellery making 10 week course Wednesday 6.30 - 8.30 pm (starting Wednesday 14th September ) This course is suitable for beginners or returning students wanting to expand their jewellery making knowledge. Beginners - We will start with using copper to learn some basic techniques such as how to anneal metal, filing, forming, cutting metal with a piercing saw, adding texture and soldering. Each week we will build on the skills needed to make your own pieces of jewellery before utilising the skills in a bezel setting project. If you have previously attended a 1 day workshop and would like to expand your skills I would recommend starting with this course. (see FAQ page for information) The beginners course includes 1 project in silver - A bezel set ring or halo pendant (either a gemstone, dichroic glass cabochon or sea glass) and silver and stones for this will be supplied along with lots of copper for practicing each technique. The option to upgrade your stone is available and stones are usually available to buy if you wish to do so. (This does depend on the supply available at the time). Depending on progress, students may be able to work on their own projects in the last couple of weeks of the course. Any students who wish to complete extra projects with silver will need to purchase their own silver supplies. Returning students - will we start with a tube setting project and silver and Swarovski crystals are provided for this. We will also do some enamelled jewellery. Students are then free to undertake their own projects (students will be responsible for supplying any silver for these projects). I can also cover some other techniques on request such as flush setting, claw setting, spinner rings, Delft clay casting etc. Projects can be discussed at the start of the course. This course runs for 10 weeks with a week off during October half term therefor there is no class on 26th October, so the final class will be November 23rd (Total of 10 sessions).
