Reserved for Niki - 5 week jewellery class - Tuesday mornings starting 10th November
Reserved for Niki
New for 2020!
The move into a new studio has allowed me to offer weekly classes again - firstly in the morning, with evening classes coming again soon!
This set of classes runs on Tuesday mornings, 10-1pm on the following dates:
10th November, 17th November, 24th November, 1st December, 8th December 2020
This class is perfect for everyone from complete beginners upwards. The small group setting with a maximum of 6 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!
You can choose to take one block of 5 week classes or continue for as long as you wish - it's up to you! The dates for classes for the New Year 2021 will be available in November.
If you are new to jewellery making I will take you through the basic skills, teaching you how to make rings, bangles or chains and how to saw, file, form, texture and polish silver before moving onto stone setting and other more complex projects.
If you have previous jewellery making experience then this is the ideal course to help you advance your skills to tackle more complicated projects - tube setting, hollow forms, Keum Boo, flush setting, anticlastic and synclastic forming, and riveting are just a few of the techniques we can cover!
Only 6 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
