Intermediate/advanced six week courses
Aimed at the developing jeweller wanting to learn more advanced and intricate techniques. The advanced projects can either be project led or your own designs and ideas. Projects for intermediate/advanced students are more time consuming so only one piece will be completed within the six weeks due to the more complex nature of what you will be making. Projects can include multi stone set bangles, bracelets and rings. Lockets and necklaces featuring hinges. Claw settings, faceted stone settings and flush set stones.
