Weekly Classes run term time on a rolling basis in 8 week blocks. We currently have classes on a Monday and Thursday evening and Thursday mornings and aftyernoons in a brand new studio space at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet in Sheffield. These classes are a perfect way to begin or continue learning and enjoying making pieces of jewellery. We welcome beginners as well as students with previous experience of jewellery making also.
The rolling 8 week courses allow students to develop their own projects with support and guidance from their tutor. You will be introduced to the workshop, all the tools and equipment and health and safety. You will learn how to texture, heat, hammer, stamp, saw pierce, solder, anneal, form and polish metal. New techniques are demonstrated in these sessions, with the opportunity to focus on a particular technique such as stone setting, wirework and forming in more detail alongside developing greater skill and confidence in soldering, polishing and finishing techniques. Students attending the weekly classes will be of mixed ability, working on a range of individual projects; this is a great way to share ideas with each other in the class. Other areas that are discussed in the weekly classes include making your own findings and how to finish off your pieces of work, jewellery designing to create your own collections and pricing your work for selling.
Students work on a range of projects and make individual pieces of work including, earrings, rings, cufflinks, bangles and pendants. Some students also make their own pieces of work for special occasions including wedding jewellery and hair accessories. You will take home a number of pieces of jewellery over the 8 weeks.
