About the Course
Learn a range of jewellery making techniques on this fun one day workshop at Studio Budgie Galore, a brand new workshop based at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet in Sheffield and take home at least one piece made in silver at the end of the day. This one day course is suitable for beginners as well as students with previous experience of jewellery making.
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. After a morning experimenting with a range of techniques you will decide on a design to make in the afternoon - on a silver jewellery workshop you will choose if you would like to make a ring or pendant or earrings. If you are on a specific workshop such as a silver ring in a day we will discuss your design ideas and the type of ring you would like to make in the afternoon. Other areas that are discussed during the workshop include jewellery findings and how to finish off your pieces of work.
Jules is a fully qualified teacher and designer with more than 16 years teaching experience.

What's included in the price?
The studio is well equipped with all the tools needed to make a wide range of jewellery. All materials are included in the cost of the day and tea, coffee and cake are also provided. Bring a packed lunch with you on the day for Saturday workshops. There is a café on site where lunch can be purchased on Sunday workshops.
This workshop will give you the opportunity to see if jewellery making is for you and maybe continue on a longer course in September.
Whether you've made jewellery for years or are looking for an opportunity to try it for the first time, Jules will make you feel welcome and capable. She's a really knowledgeable tutor and has a great way of encouraging and developing ideas with you, helping you to understand the best way forward with a particular project, and offering different options for creating your own unique pieces of work. I love being at the studio and would go much more often if I could. It's very well-equipped and the people who go to the classes are always so friendly and eager to learn / share ideas. If you're thinking of trying out Budgie Galore I'd really recommend giving it a go!

I find the jewellery making classes totally absorbing and enjoyable, a great therapy for a busy life. The studio is a lovely place to be and Jules is a brilliant and patient teacher.

I have really enjoyed all the classes I have done and now have lots of beautiful jewellery to wear.
Jules is a great tutor and is very patient and encouraging. She helps everyone to design their own pieces and provides just the right guidance to ensure the projects are a success.

Jules is a fantastic tutor and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this class to anyone. I had no experience in jewellery making but have already made some earrings and a beautiful silver and amethyst ring (I supplied my own gemstone for my particular preference). The workshop is well stocked with lots of equipment, bright and airy and in a lovely setting. I particularly enjoy learning to solder and there are lots of different techniques to learn.
Having suffered with severe anxiety, Jules encouraged me to join, after a few false starts on my part, and I am so glad that she did. She is friendly, warm and patient and the people in the group are lovely. I go home with a great sense of achievement and my mood has lifted considerably. For anyone that practices mindfulness, this class gives you an opportunity to make a piece that is meaningful to you and you focus on the here and now. Perfect practice! Plus you go home with something really nice.
I am definitely signing up for the next workshop.

The class is so very relaxed and comfortable, it makes me want to learn more and more it is so very interesting and Julie is so encouraging with every aspect of jewellery making. You are made to feel a worthwhile member of the class and are made to feel that you can attempt any project & adequately succeeding.

A brilliant course. I had some previous experience but the people in my group didn't. Jules gave us all loads of her time and helped everyone make individual pieces. She showed us loads of different techniques - a fantastic full day. Can't wait to sign up for more. Thanks

A very full day, with so much information and equipment provided. I didn't think one could learn so much in one session, and take home some very respectable pieces of work.
