What you will learn

This is a practical course and you will start making your own pieces of jewellery from the start. In the first 5 weeks you will learn all of the essential jewellery making skills such as cutting, filing, soldering, texturing, forming and annealing metal. You will make a saw pierced pendant, texture metal and a silver ring.

In the second half of the term we will be exploring wax carving. We will send our waxes to a casting company to be cast in either silver or bronze. We will also be exploring casting a small scale jewellery pieces in the studio with the use of cuttlefish. Its a fantastic way of understanding the basics of casting metal, making a mould and working with hot metal safely.

On the course we will also be learning about the wider context of jewellery design such as London’s jewellery quarter (Hatton Garden), jewellery designers, exhibitions and galleries to visit. You will get used to keeping a benchbook for recording processes, ideas and designs.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress ou your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
