Introduction to Jewellery Making Course

This class is for you if you are a complete newbie or for those of you who may be a little rusty and would like to get back into Jewellery making after a break!

Is this Intro to Jewellery Making Course the right course for me?

We understand how daunting it is to start something new and how easy it is to lose it, if you don’t use it. We pride ourselves on small intimate classes, this is so that:

1. You, our students feel comfortable in your new explorations
2. Our teachers can really get to know you and help and guide you through each class.

Our introductory course is the perfect place to start! If you’re still unsure if this is right course for you, we recommend trying one of our taster classes, which are €75 and run for approx. 2.5 hours! This will give you an idea of what’s to come. 

What will I learn

In this fun and flexible course you will learn how to make a ring or pendant in sterling silver and how to set a gemstone into your design!

It’s open to all learning stages so it’s really your own project with the help and guidance of our experienced tutor who will be there to guide and support you with her extensive knowledge.

Learn about the following settings:

Flush
Bezel
You can bring in your ideas for your design on the first day or email them in beforehand if you want to check anything!

Health and Safety

We ask that you wear closed shoes. You will be provided with aprons to keep your clothes clean. We have halved our class capacity to ensure the safety and well being of our staff and students during the current situation we find ourselves in. We ask that all students and teachers wear visors or masks during our class, as an added precaution, to keep each other safe. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided for you. Each of our studios have been fitted with perspex dividers. We have installed sanitation stations for you to use on entering and exiting our premises.
