INTERMEDIATE JEWELLERY MAKING -JUNE LONG WEEKEND

INTERMEDIATE JEWELLERY MAKING -JUNE LONG WEEKEND

3 Consecutive days of 6 hours per day


Description

The Intermediate and Continuing Jewellery June long weekend is designed to allow students to progress their skills through the different stages of jewellery making, refining and adding new techniques to their repertoire. Your tutor assists you with design development, technical issues and problem-solving.

Students will expand upon the fundamentals of jewellery making and design and make pieces that incorporate sterling silver and cubic zirconias.

The primary focus will be tube setting stones. Tube setting is a technique that can be incorporated into a wide range of designs from delicate rings to more robust designs. Students are introduced to more advanced and complicated soldering tasks and also to the safe and effective use of the flex shaft paving the way for students to embark on more complex designs and professional finishes.

Students that have completed this Intermediate level class are able to move onto more advanced workshops such as our popular Gypsy setting workshop also led by Melanie Ihnen.

The pre-requisite for this course is our Beginners course or equivalent.

It was a great workshop on the long weekend. It is always good to learn and practice with a teacher. Mel was fabulous and kind to share her knowledge. I highly recommend this course to everyone who is interested in making jewelry with tube setting.

This was a great class for those wishing to extend their skills. Mel is a patient and attentive teacher. I learned how to tube set, having never done this before, and feel confident I could now do this myself at home. I have participated in 2 Square Peg classes now, and have another booked, and have loved them both.
