Simple and practical techniques in jewellery such as piercing, filing, soldering, simple fittings and finishes will be taught, with an emphasis on developing confidence and realising the potential for making jewellery with limited access to equipment and skills. Silver will be supplied as part of the course. The aim is for students to produce some finished work. Students should bring overalls with them.
