Description

The 4-day Sunday School over four weekends is a perfect introduction to jewellery making and jewellery design. All tools and base metals are provided, as well as a strip of silver for your work. This course is designed to allow students to progress through the out-set stages of jewellery making. Your tutor Sian Edwards will assist you with design development, technical issues and problem-solving. There is no pre-requisite for this course.

Sunday School students will learn a range of fundamental techniques over the 4 full days of the course and students will make a textured copper ring band for practice, followed by a sterling silver piece of their own design. Processes focusing on forming and texturing such as doming, embossing and stamping will be learnt to aid inspiration.

The aim of this course is to provide students with the confidence and skills to work on individual projects while gaining a greater depth of understanding of jewellery making techniques and jewellery design starting from the ground up.

What do students learn?

Metal cutting – students are taught how to saw-pierce metal using professional jewellery saw frames

How to size your ring

Texturing and stamping – whether it’s a hammered texture, or stamping with letter stamps on metal, we have a range of tools for students to experiment with

Roller printing – learn how to impress directly on to metal using a specialist rolling mill. Print with feathers, leaves, fabric, art papers, hand cut stencils and much more

Soldering – using special jewellery torches students learn how to anneal and solder metal to join the silver together to make a ring band

Drilling

Forming metal – how to shape and dome metal

Finishing – learn how to file and use emery paper to give your ring a final finish

Patinate – use a special blackening compound to highlight parts of your design

Polish – refine and perfect the surface finish of your design

Many of our students produce outstanding work and continue to specialised workshops such as Stone Setting or Wax Carving and Casting.

Great class for beginners or those who are just interested in jewellery making but have a full time job during week days. Sian was very informative and genuine in helping you make the most out of every classes. I'm glad to have attended Square Peg because now I have jewellery I can wear out and be proud to say that I made it! Will definitely be coming back to do other courses :)
