A small friendly class tailored for students of all abilities, from beginners to those with some jewellery skills wishing to improve or advance. Beginners start by using base metals, such as copper and brass, advancing to silver and gold. During the course students will experiment with a range of techniques such as shaping, forming and soldering. Particular emphasis is given not only to the practical skills of jewellery making but also to the design and wearability of finished items. Past students have gone from novice level to selling their own pieces on the design circuit.
After leaving university Annie pursued her longing to study Art and Design and was accepted at Saint Martin’s School of Art where she completed a foundation course.
