This 8-week stone setting and fabrication course is designed to enhance existing skills with instruction and guidance from a professional trade jeweller. It is suitable for those working at intermediate or advanced jewellery making levels. Prior stone setting experience is not necessary.
In this course you will gain skills in fabricating settings including constructing irregular and standard shapes using claws and bezels and solder free settings. You will then be guided to complete a stone set piece of your own design.
Students are required to purchase their own silver and gemstones for the projects and your tutor will provide you with the necessary details and information on how to do so. Other affordable options such as brass and copper are available should you choose not to work in silver. Should you wish to discuss material requirements and costs with the lecturer prior to commencement please contact the lecturer, Alan Tilsley (email@example.com)
Students will also be required to bring basic jewellery making hand tools and all consumables such as solder, flux, drills, emery and sawblades, a sketch/notebook, pen and pencil.
