Private Jewellery Tuition

Our private tuition is a popular option for intermediate students that prefer a one-on-one learning style.
You can book a 4 or 8 hour block of time to expand on your existing jewellery making skills or pay by the hour. It's up to you.
Learn to carve waxes for casting, focus on your soldering skills, learn to solder fiddly items such as jump rings, earring posts and claw settings.
Use a rolling mill to emboss patterns into silver, such as a leaf or create a specific piece of jewellery such as a bezel setting for an unusual shaped stone.
You can also focus on texturing metal and discovering different finishes and polishing techniques (this is something a lot of students have trouble with).
Some of the skills you can learn during private lessons are:
- Lost wax carving
- Navajo Style Rings
- Liquid Enameling
- Earring, bangle, ring or pendant making
- Chain Making
- Creating unusual findings for jewellery
- Embossing patterns into silver using a rolling mill
- Acid Etching
- Soldering techniques
- Gem setting techniques
