Saturday 25th September 10-5pm 2020
Workshop 925 based at The Mayford Centre, just outside of Woking and very close to Guildford.
Unit F9 The Mayford Centre,
What does the day involve?
In this one-day introduction to grain setting techniques, you will learn how to set small stones in a selection of styles.
We will begin with a simple single stone grain setting before moving on to a traditional star setting and finally a row of five stones in a thread and gain style setting.
During the day, we will also look at considerations for grain setting as well as the preparation of tools and possible applications.
Please do not book if you do not agree with our Coronavirus procedures.
Students should have some stone setting experience and be confident using normal jewellery tools and equipment. If you are unsure, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any queries, we are always here to help.
5. To allow for us to socially distance a can only allow 5 students and one tutor within the workshop at one time.
What is included?
- All tools and consumables are supplied

What to bring:
For safety reasons, during each class, you are required to wear appropriate footwear, we request that no open toed shoes are worn within Workshop 925. Long hair should also be tied back when working with the equipment. You may also wish to bring a notebook. We have handouts for many demonstrations, but there are always many tips and tricks given verbally by the tutor, which some might like to keep note of. Please bring any PPE, snacks and drinks to each session. We regret we can’t offer tea and coffee at the moment due to Coronavirus.
For stone setting courses, it is also recommended to bring Optivisors if you have any or glasses which allow you to see smaller stones.
