One of the most popular programmes within Continuing Education, the Silversmithing & Jewellery courses offer a high standard of tutelage in the various skills necessary to making precious metal jewellery and design objects. With a focus on fabrication and techniques, these courses offer students the chance to create individual pieces both functional and decorative that will stand for many years.
Jewellery Workshop One*
This course will introduce you to a variety of practical skills that form the basis of precious metal jewellery design and fabrication. You will learn how to cut, form,
solder and construct silver and other metals to create wearable jewellery pieces. A range of technical and decorative techniques such as roll-printing, pressforming,
doming and polishing will be covered.
Jewellery Workshop Two*
This course is suitable for more advanced students, such as those who have attended Jewellery Evening Courses previously or professional jewellers who would
like to develop their skills. The aim of the course is to broaden your existing knowledge in the design and fabrication of jewellery. A broad variety of techniques
are demonstrated, while one-to-one tuition will focus on your creative development. Some examples of techniques covered include inlay, patination, hinging, stone setting, forging, etching and riveting.
This course provides instruction on a complete range of silversmithing techniques. Although silver is the predominant material used, you are free to explore
alternative materials. The class is suitable for beginners through to advanced levels. Beginners will primarily be acquiring basic skills while working towards making a simple piece. More experienced students will be able to expand their skills and learn new or more complex techniques.
