Jewellery Summer School - 5 day intensive course (10 - 4 pm each day) This course is suitable for beginners and is jam packed with techniques and projects. Starting with using copper, you will learn basic techniques such as how to anneal metal, filing, forming, cutting metal with a piercing saw, adding texture and soldering. You will then have the chance to undertake several projects, including making some fused glass cabochons and making a bezel set ring or halo pendant. You can use one of your fused glass cabochons or choose from the supplies available (either gemstone, glass cabochon or sea glass). We will also make a spinner ring. Please bring a packed lunch, or food can be bought from the on-site café.
