This intermediate level course will introduce you to working with a range of mixed metals used in jewellery construction. Over the 10 sessions, as your confidence increases, you'll build upon your existing skills enabling you to create a collection of pieces using a variety of traditional jewellery, silversmithing techniques and combining materials to stunning effect.
Some of the specialist techniques covered include hot and cold connection processes using a variety of common metals. You'll then progress to using silver and gold once the essential techniques are mastered.
You'll be taught the necessary skills needed to size, shape, texture, form, join and finish metal pieces, including how to use the tools and equipment to add dimensions to your jewellery and create beautiful bespoke pieces.
Delivered by our highly experienced jeweller and tutor, Samantha O'Brien, this course is ideal for anyone with some previous experience or graduates of our Silversmithing Jewellery Workshop short course that understand the basic skills of jewellery making.
