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.
Hope to see you soon at Touchmark Studios!
