Weekly jewellery tuition



*Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Sam is not currently offering any classes. This page will be updated once classes resume, or alternatively please message to be added to the mailing list to receive an update once classes resume* 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 has exhibited his work with many of the highest calibre craft and art galleries in the UK, such as the Masterpiece London Art Fair. He has also assisted the production of works for other renowned and successful artists and makers, and provided lecturing to undergraduate university students. Open classes are held at his studio on Saturdays on a pay as you go per hour basis (£15 per hour), and also available on weekdays for private fixed rate half (9am-1pm) or full day (9am-5pm with a short lunch break) bookings. Classes are kept small so there is plenty of time for each student, and beginners are very welcome. A great first project for beginners is to make a plain ring, which is great fun to make and introduces a student to all of the main jewellery making techniques such as sawing, measuring, filing, forming, soldering, finishing, etc. This can be achieved in 4 hours for most students. Sam can provide some copper/brass for free for this project, or a student can purchase silver through Sam for a ring to keep. 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, and for detailed information and directions.
