Suitable for all levels including beginners.
Whether you are new to jewellery making or would like some workshop time to improve
your skills this is the course for you. Over the 10 weeks we will cover many of the traditional
techniques used in the trade and you will use them to make at least two beautifully crafted
items designed by yourself.

Information about your course:
What do I need to bring?
Notepad (blank page) or sketchbook
Pen and pencil
Any jewellery that you have made before
Textures such as skeleton leaves, fabric off cuts, textured paper…

What shall I wear?
Please make sure that you have a hairband to tie your hair back and do not wear floaty
skirts, really loose fitting clothes, scarves or open toe shoes as we will be in a workshop
environment. We will use torches and some acids which can damage clothes so an apron or
pinny is recommended as well as remembering not to wear your favourite jeans!

What is included?
Tools
Handouts on processes and techniques
Out of class email support
Facebook page weekly info
Your work will feature on the Facebook page too!!!

What can I hope to make?
You will make a range of samples, in copper, using the techniques shown and complete a
workbook of processes.
You will complete at least two pieces of wearable silver jewellery within the 10 weeks.

I’ve got a design in mind!
If you already have a design in mind please contact Beccy to discuss the viability and what
you might need to purchase to make it.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch with Beccy
on beccy925@hotmail.com and she will be happy to help!
