Tue 17 Apr, 6.30pm – 9pm | 12 wk Term £141 (£127) | Improver/Advanced Level | Age 18+
A great opportunity for those who have an existing knowledge of jewellery making to work independently or refine their skills with support from the artist tutor.
Who is this course for?
This is an advanced level activity that is suitable for adults aged 18+. You must have some previous jewellery making experience and be confident in using all traditional studio tools on your own. This is not a course but an opportunity to work independently but with help from the tutor as needed.
The activity is accessible for adults of all abilities with advanced levels of experience but requires a high level of manual dexterity and tool handling. We can provide a learning support worker and the studio is wheelchair accessible.
What will you learn on this course?
Rather than a taught course this is an opportunity for jewellery makers to develop their own designs and make them in our fully equipped studio with the support of an experienced artist tutor. You will work on individual projects at your own pace with access to a range of professional equipment including work benches, a soldering hearth and torch, enamelling kiln, etching solutions, polishing motor and various hand tools.
Work produced by jewellery makers on mac courses has previously been exhibited in the made at mac gallery exhibition and selected for sale at the mac craft market.
Do you need to bring anything?
All tools and equipment is provided. However you will need to purchase materials for the jewellery you wish to make as below.
