About the Course
The Photic School of Art is a jewellery school based in Mid Devon, near the village of Cadeleigh, and around 10 miles North of Exeter (a 30 minute drive). It is tutored by contemporary artist and jeweller, Sam Photic.
Sam is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, and exhibits and supplies galleries nationally.
Classes are held on Saturdays by appointment, and also available on weekdays for bookings of two or more students. Classes are kept small so there is plenty of time for each student, and beginners are very welcome.
Classes are £15 per hour on a pay as you go basis with tuition tailored to the needs of each student.
Please send an e-mail to arrange an available slot during the Monday and Tuesday sessions, and for detailed directions:
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Tools, equipment and tailored tuition in a beautiful old studio.
Sam is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. He has a lot of experience about the various techniques and problem solving.
After a 1 day session I came away with a beautiful textured silver ring and very comfortable with the use of the tools, flames, solder, files, sawing and so on
I drove all the way down from London and spent an entire day there which was worth it. I have since booked additional days over the next few months. The location is beautiful and the perfect learning environment.

Sam is a natural teacher. He has a wealth of technical knowledge and huge enthusiasm to pass it on. He also seems to have a particular gift at problem solving.
Sam is endlessly patient and this combined with his enthusiasm and encouragement makes learning with him fun. I would recommend him to anyone whether they are just beginning or are experienced and just want to learn a particular technique.
