Details

On this course, you will learn the differences between the two metals and look closely at how different carats of gold each have their own characteristics when working with them. This will inform the student on which metal is most suitable to work with for a project.

Throughout the course, you will have access to our fully equipped studio, which is stocked with all the tools and materials you need to create jewellery. You'll also have the opportunity to work alongside other students, sharing ideas and inspiration and learning from one another.

This intermediate-level course is suitable for students who have already mastered the basics of jewellery making and are looking to take their skills to the next level. If you're unsure whether this course is right for you, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.

What will I learn?

  • Designing and planning a silver and gold jewellery piece
  • How to properly use jewellers' tools
  • Filing, sanding and finishing
  • The basics of soldering silver and gold pieces together
  • Creating settings for gemstones in silver and gold
  • Techniques for texturing and shaping silver and gold
  • Developing an eye for detail and quality craftsmanship
  • Troubleshooting common problems

Materials

Course fees include solder and saw blades. Metals, findings and a variety of stones are available for purchase at the school or feel free to bring your own to work with.

If a student would like to work in gold they must purchase their own gold and gold solder. We do not carry gold at the workshop, however, we can order gold in advance of a term. Please contact us if you do intend to order gold from us.
