How I'll learn
As a beginner, you will learn the skills needed to create your own jewellery using copper or silver. From cutting metal and soldering to enameling and stone setting, you will be able to create items of jewellery with the help of the tutor.
More advanced learners will be able to work on their ideas and will have the opportunity to learn more advanced techniques throughout the course, such as granulation, fusing and reticulation.
