Jewellery Making Summer School: Absolute Beginners

About Jewellery Making Summer School: Absolute Beginners

Our week long summer school course is a fantastic opportunity to explore what we do at the School, meet our tutors and enjoy a week of creative inspiration. Held over five consecutive days in our light, spacious studio in Dunblane, this course is an opportunity to immerse yourself in jewellery making under expert tuition.

Transforming a sheet of silver into a piece of jewellery can be a fulfilling and exciting creative process. This intensive five day course will introduce you to the traditional techniques and tools used to make jewellery. The aim of this course, using demonstrations and structured guidance from the tutor, is to instill confidence as you learn techniques such as sawing, soldering, annealing, filing, texturing and shaping to create a piece of silver jewellery during the course and when you continue making afterwards.

Students will start by using copper (which has similar working properties to silver) to practice on, then progress to using silver for final pieces. This course is an ideal introduction if you are taking your first steps in jewellery making or suitable for returning students looking to build upon their existing knowledge to create more complex pieces. Copper, a small amount of sheet silver, tools and equipment are all provided. Extra silver can be purchased at cost during the course if needed.

Good eyesight and hand dexterity is needed for jewellery making. Please bring along glasses if you need them for close work and wear appropriate clothing for a studio environment including closed toe shoes. If you have long hair please wear it up.

Monday – Friday, 9:30-4:30 with a break for lunch. Lunch is not provided but you can bring a lunch to eat in the studio or we can advise you of nearby places to buy a lunch. Refreshments provided.

**Please note: classes may be cancelled due to lack of attendees. In the unlikely event, you will be fully refunded and notified the day before the class is scheduled**
