Flexible online courses

These courses have been designed for anyone looking for a creative hobby made up of online video conference in small groups.

Anticipated cost of tools and materials: depending on what you want to make and from which materials, for example beading and wire wrapped jewellery can be made relatively cheaply, whereas silver often requires specialist tools for working, although a lot can still be achieved with a very basic set of jewellers tools. I can advise on tool purchase and can supply starter kits tailored to suit whatever jewellery you want to make during the courses I am offering a basic set of tools for a beginner project will be in the region of £125 this will also include enough sterling silver to make approximately 6 items.

Courses will follow this layout:

Week 1 discuss jewellery making aims and tools needed and order tools.
Week 2 setting up tools and learning how to use.
Weeks 3-6 making jewellery.
