About the Course

We run Beginners' One Day Courses in fine jewellery making, where you can choose to work in sterling silver or 9ct yellow gold.

Our One Day Beginners' Courses run with a minimum of one and a maximum of three attendees. You may wish to attend on your own, with a friend or family member, or book your own activity day for a birthday outing or alternative hen weekend.
It's a fun and intensive day learning the basic techniques of fine jewellery making. Small class sizes mean that you can have as much hands-on support and guidance as you need, have a wonderful creative experience, and come away with jewellery you are thrilled with. The workshop is suitable for absolute beginners and also those with a little prior experience. Very much bespoke in flavour, our classes are relaxed and informative, are designed to be creatively freeing, and have no rigidly prescribed outcome. For example, if you want to spend the day making a simple set of silver stacking rings, you can... or if you'd rather try your hand at an elegant bangle or learn how to make a handmade chain, you can... if you're hoping to come away with a pierced-work pendant or a pair of drop earrings, that's fine! It's entirely up to you what you'd like to make.

Our workshop days run from 10am and finish around 4pm, with a break for lunch. Please note that we have a dog (a friendly, gentle, quiet rescue greyhound) who comes into to the studio with us, and also a white rescue cat who likes to hang out occasionally. Please be aware of this if you have allergies!
