4-day Jewellery-making Course with Jinks McGrath – Sussex

Jinks McGrath at the entrance to the Jewellery Workshops


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. There are a maximum of 5 students, ensuring everyone receives individually tailored tuition.

About the course:

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.

Each course day runs from 10am to 5pm.


With lockdown easing it is anticipated that this course will be able to return to the usual 5 student capacity. It is likely however that student’s temperatures will need to be taken at the start of each day, that face-coverings will be required to be worn in the workshop, along with hand sanitising. If there are any changes to the governments’ Covid-19 guidance, that looks to affect the running of this course, we will be in touch with students who have booked as soon as possible.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

The course breaks each day at 1pm for a delicious homemade lunch. 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!
