Jinks McGrath has been making jewellery for 40 years, teaching in the UK and abroad for 25 years and is the author of 7 renowned jewellery technique books - widely used in training colleges.
Suitable for all abilities – whether jewellery is a new interest, you’re looking to learn a new technique or wanting to brush up on an old one - everyone is welcome.
For beginners we start with basic silver-smithing techniques like measuring, piercing, soldering, filing and polishing. For more advanced students techniques such as stone setting, surface finishes, etching, enamelling techniques, reticulation and lathe work can be pursued at a pace to suit the student.
A delicious home-made lunch is included every day of the course. Each course day runs from 10am to 5pm.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The course breaks at 1pm for a delicious homemade lunch around the big table in the Barn. Coffee, teas and biscuits are also available in the workshop.
The workshop is fully equipped for students, with most tools and machinery imaginable. You are welcome to bring your own tools if you want but this is not necessary!
If required Jinks can supply for your course, at trade cost, silver and some semi-precious stones… all you really need to bring is an apron and an idea of what you’d like to make or what you’d like to learn!
