Short Course in Jewellery Making
Make your own bespoke jewellery and accessories using semi-precious metals with this short course. Designed for both beginners and those with some experience of jewellery making, the course covers a range of techniques.
When will I start the course and how long will it take?
This part-time, evening course has start dates in September, January and April and will take 10 weeks to complete.
The course is held at St Helens College Town Centre Campus.
What will I study?
This course is ideal for both beginners and those with some previous experience of working with precious metals.
The course will introduce you to silversmithing technique, tools and equipment whilst making items such as rings, pendants, brooches, ear rings, chains etc.
Students will be directed to hand make certain objects within the sessions but can adopt these into more personal objects.
Those students with some experience will be able to make functional or sculptural objects of their choice working with the tutor to enhance the design making and decorating process.
Due to the dramatic rise in the cost of precious metals students will be expected to order their own silver. Very small quantities can be purchased and delivered, dependent on your designs and budget. The tutor will advise on these details at the start of the course.
All students will be able to take their final pieces home with them.
Do I need any previous qualifications to start this course?
There are no formal entry requirements. As with all our leisure courses the main emphasis is to come along and enjoy the course. All you need is commitment and enthusiasm.
What are the course fees?
The total cost of the course is £130.00. To secure your place, you can book and pay in our online shop. This is a full cost course meaning that there are no fee discounts available.
