About the Classes:
Suitable for all levels, our weekly classes offer a relaxed and inspiring workshop and offers everything you’ll need to learn the many skills and techniques needed to be able to design and make your own jewellery, all with the expert guidance of professional Jewellery and Silversmithing Designer Jessica Noble.
You will be guided and supported through various projects and will learn how to work in silver and other precious materials. During these classes you will learn and practice Piercing (sawing), Forming, Soldering, Ring making, Stone setting, Texturing, Etching, Roller milling, Finishing and Polishing, amongst a whole host of other specialist techniques. As your confidence grows you will be able to work on your own self set designs and will be guided through individual designing and making techniques during the class.
And for those with more experience, our weekly classes offer a supported, professional and inspiring space in which you are able, and encouraged to develop your designs and skills by working on self led projects with technical help and guidance from your tutor.
Class numbers are small (up to 5) so the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, as well as giving you lots of individual help and support from the tutor and good access to tools and equipment.
Our courses run year round with no 'term-time' or 'holidays'. Courses run for 5 weeks and you are able to book again for the following 5 week courses meaning you can continue with your learning and creative jewellery projects and develop your skills for as long as you like.
What will I need to bring?
With classes being in a professional workshop environment, things can get a little bit messy so we suggest that you bring an apron, wear old clothes and closed toe shoes. If you have long hair - bring a hairband! It might also help to bring a notebook, pen/pencils and a container or small tool box to keep your work in.
