Silversmithing, Jewellery Making and Stone Setting for Beginners


Course outline

This course is suitable for both newcomers doing Level 1 and returners doing Level 2 and helps to build confidence and employability skills. The course requires commitment and punctuality and includes keeping records, undertaking research, use of technology and meeting deadlines - all whilst working responsibly in a college environment using potentially dangerous tools and equipment.

You will learn basic silversmith skills including simple stone setting. The course is   suitable for complete beginners while more experienced learners will be encouraged to work on technique and design. Projects will be chosen for their flexibility so both beginners and returning learners can work at their own pace.
