Suitable for all levels of experience, whether you are a complete beginner or already jewellery making and looking to fill knowledge gaps and improve your technique, our Fashion Jewellery programme is comprehensive training for anyone who would like to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in making fashion jewellery. A mixed ability class, you'll find it a supportive learning environment where students learn from and inspire each other.
This hands on training takes place in our well-equipped, professional jewellery studio where you will learn the theory, watch each technique demonstrated by your expert tutor, ask questions and practise the techniques taught so you gain confidence in making jewellery. And there's always help on hand to guide, encourage and help, quickly identifying any issues and advising how to correct them.
Where this jewellery making course differs from others is that it also teaches you how to buy the correct jewellery making equipment and materials, reducing mistaken purchases and saving you money. Plus, you will learn lots of tips and tricks of the trade that you can start putting into practise straight away.
