Whether you’ve been curious about the craftsmanship behind your precious jewellery or have dabbled in jewellery making yourself, this course caters to you! Join the talented Mackenzie Russell for an engaging 7-week journey to learn jewellery making.

In our well-equipped studio, you’ll embark on your jewellery-making adventure, starting with the basics. Under Mackenzie’s guidance, you will learn essential benchwork techniques like sawing, piercing, filing, and sanding. Once you’ve mastered these techniques, you’ll advance to using the jeweller’s torch to bring your pieces to life. Finally, you’ll perfect your creations, ensuring they are beautifully finished and polished, ready to be worn with pride, all while maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

Throughout the course, you will work with a variety of materials, including copper, brass, and sterling silver. With these materials, you will craft a pendant, a band ring, and a chainmail bracelet. This course serves as a strong foundation for future, more advanced jewellery-making courses. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the art of jewellery-making with Mackenzie Russell’s expert guidance!
