Unique, exquisite, stylish – just some of the words used to describe jewellery. If you are on the search for a one-of-a-kind piece, then why not make it yourself? Design and create your own jewellery in this introductory short course and be guided through the process to craft a neck pendant and a finger ring in either silver, brass or copper. No refunds apply unless the course is cancelled by TAFE SA. International students on a Student visa (subclass 500) are not eligible to undertake short courses.
Learn how to saw, file, solder, polish and add decorative finishes to your pieces while gaining insight into basic design principles to apply to future creations. By the end of the course you will have an individual, hand-crafted piece of jewellery.
Participants are required to purchase their own silver 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. The course fee also includes a small equipment pack (needle file, saw blades, emery sticks and a dust mask).
Please wear safe, closed toe, footwear (no sandals or high heels).
What to bring: sketch/notebook, pen and pencil.
