Prerequisites: The Beginners Course or equivalent.
At The Goldsmiths School we are aware that each person has an individual reason to learn Silversmithing and Goldsmithing, be it a small studio designer, a model builder, a hobbyist, an artist, or someone who wishes to express themselves in a creative way.
The Construction Course is an open ended, self paced, project based system of learning that covers the technical and design skills of Gold & Silversmithing.
The course guides the student from the Beginners Course into a step-by-step system of skills acquisition. Techniques taught in the course become more advanced and involved, as the student progresses.
Techniques covered include:
Jewellery design, soldering, chain making, forging, doming, repousse, gemsetting, and all other aspects of practical jewellery making.
This course is structured in continuous five lesson x 3 hour modules, which the student may commence at any time. Each student is treated individually within a class size of approximately 12 people, and two teachers, in an air-conditioned well equipped studio/workshop. The school runs according to the academic year.
