Intensive 5 day Jewellery Skills Course - £250 to include materials
2nd, 3rd, 9th, 16th and 17th March, 2013
This course is great value at only £50 per day and is suitable for complete beginners and those who wish to get a head start in conventional jewellery making but don't have the time to commit to a long term course.
Over the five one-day sessions you will be learning traditional metal working skills such as sawing, soldering, drilling, texturing, wire work, filing, doming, chain making, sanding, polishing and patination techniques for surface colour and texture.
All tools and equipment will be available for students use and comprehensive notes on techniques covered will be provided. Using the skills that they have learnt, students will be encouraged to design and produce a piece of work using silver sheet and a semi- precious stone. The cost of the course includes consumables, such as saw blades, copper, solder , emery papers, a prescribed amount of 925 sterling silver and a semi-precious stone. At the end of the course, students will have an understanding of conventional jewellery making techniques and be confident in carrying out a number of technical processes including use of motorised machinery and equipment. For those who wish to continue jewellery making the studio is open every Monday morning and Wednesday for advice and full use of tools and equipment for just £10 per session.
If this course isn't for you then why not book onto the next Metal Clay Rings course on25th May or Stone Setting Techniques with Metal Clay on 15th June. Details of both these courses can be found on the website.
Hope to see you at Touchmark Studios soon.
Best wishes Chris Pate
