Jewellery Summer School - 13th to 16th August 2020
We will be covering a wide range of jewellery techniques from bangles, rings and chain making to Keum Boo (adding 24k gold to silver), casting scrap silver into ingots to recycle through the rolling mill and using a hydraulic press to create hollow forms, making the Summer School perfect for everyone from complete beginners upwards. The small group setting with a maximum of 4 students will ensure that you get the attention you need to help you create beautiful jewellery - and learn wonderful techniques to use to continue creating afterwards!
This is your opportunity to learn the techniques you've always meant to add to your repertoire or to catch up on workshop topics that you have missed, and to do so at a fantastic workshop fee too. If there is a particular technique that you would like to cover then it is best to email me before booking to make sure it is something we can cover in the Summer School.
A day's Keum Boo workshop is usually £120. The Spinner Ring workshop is usually £75. A two-day course on learning to use the rolling mill, creating hollow forms or perfecting your sawing techniques is usually £180. Four days private tuition is usually £540.
The four-day Summer School workshop fee is £295.
Only 4 places rather than the usual 8 are available at this time to ensure that Covid-19 measures can be put into place to keep us all as safe as possible. For more details on this please visit https://www.joannetinleyjewellery.com/pages/covid-19-information
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee. Please bring a packed lunch with you.
This workshop can be paid for in two installments of £147.50 by arrangement, with the balance paid by the end of July.
Date and Venue
10am-5pm Thursday 13th, Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August 2020 at Fairways House, Mount Pleasant Road, Southampton, Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.
Copper sheet for practicing sawing techniques are included in the workshop fee. Materials (sterling silver sheet and wire) are available for purchase on the day. The exact cost of the materials will be determined by the project or projects you choose to make. Details of the best materials to use in the class will be emailed before the workshop so that you can organise your own materials if you wish but I will have plenty for you to choose from. Cost of the silver is determined by weight. Gold can also be ordered for you, but this will need to be organised by 1st August.
Tools and Equipment
The workshop fee includes use of all the tools and equipment needed. All workshops include worksheets to take home with you and discuss tools, equipment, materials and health and safety considerations.
Cancellations of workshop places and private tuition bookings within two weeks of the event will forfeit the workshop fee/private tuition deposit unless I am able to find someone to take your place. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.
