Creative Jewellery Making – All Classes
This course focus on the use of fundamental skills in jewellery making, utilising our fully equipped workshop.
From the first night you will hand make and finish a plain Silver band ring nicked named “The Club” ring.
Classes are open to all learners regardless of experience.
For new students, you will make 3 compulsory pieces; the Club ring, a monogram pendant of your own design, and a rub-over setting for a pendant or ring. These pieces of jewellery will introduce basic control in the use of the jewellers’ hand-tools, soldering techniques and good workshop practices, including recovery of precious metals, safe handling of tools and machines in the workshop.
Returning students go straight into making your own designs, and may like to start acquiring a few personal hand tools for their own tool box.
This course is an excellent opportunity to connect with your creative side, catch-up on a project, or use the workshop resources, and learn the PMGS way. We warmly welcome you to come and enjoy making jewellery at the bench.
When you choose your class; please indicate your preferred date when enrolling. You will need to bring a bib apron, wear closed toe shoes and if you wear your hair long it must be tied up.
