Intermediate One - Jewellery Making Course

7 sessions of 3 hours per class

Wed, 03 Nov 6:30PM (AEDT) (+1 more)
3 hours x 7 Weeks
Over 100 people have attended this class


During our Intermediate 1 Jewellery Making Course, students begin to expand upon their foundation jewellery making skills learned in their studies thus far. Practical exercises will be presented at the start of term with a focus on improving student's soldering skills, introducing 3-dimensionality to designs as well as a focus on resolved surface finishes - the fast track to creating professional-looking jewellery pieces.

As the term goes on students in Intermediate 1 will create a more complex jewellery design in consultation with their tutor to further practice and finesse hand skills learned.

Our class sizes are capped at 10 enrollments to ensure the best learning experience for our students.

Many of our students produce outstanding work and go on to our Intermediate 2 course or continue to our specialised design workshops such as Gem-setting 101 Bezel Setting Workshop or Carve Your own Silver Ring – Wax Workshop.

This class was fantastic! I carried straight on from the beginners course and it was the perfect next step to increase my skills. Danielle is a great teacher, with a huge bank of knowledge that she skilfully passes on to her students.

Squarepeg allowed me to be creative and tap into my inner jewellery queen. They provide all the essential tools and materials needed, along with patience, guided tutelage. It's a blast to work lovingly on a project from inception to completion and it's such a buzz seeing the final product, knowing that it was done by my own hand! Also, it's great to meet others who are passionate and interested in creating jewellery too. Do yourself a favour and release your inner sparkle!
