Join us on this course designed to help jewellery makers with experience make money from their designs.
What will you learn on this course?
This is a 12 week course aimed at Jewellery makers with experience who want to earn money from their designs and are not sure where to start. Each week we will cover a specific topic including pricing and selling your work alongside working on your own designs with full support of the jewellery tutor. By the end of the course participants will have the skills and knowledge to turn their hobby into a business.
Who is this course for?
This course is for adults aged 18+. It is suitable for advanced level students who are experienced in jewellery making. The course is accessible for adults of all abilities but requires a high level of manual dexterity and tool handling. A support worker or carer may assist. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The studio is wheelchair accessible. Please enquire to discuss your specific needs.
Do you need to bring anything?
Students are required to wear flat closed-toe shoes, preferably trainers or boots, as this is a workshop environment with heavy tools, soldering equipment and a kiln. Unsuitable footwear may result in the student not being able to take part in the session. Long hair must be tied back. The use of protective equipment will be provided with the guidance of the Artist Tutor.
You will need to purchase materials for the jewellery you wish to make as below.
MAC can provide basic equipment to participants attending this course if needed, although attendees are encouraged to bring their own if they have them to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
