Saturday 11th February 10-5pm
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.
Students should have some stone setting experience and be confident using normal jewellery tools and equipment. If you are unsure, please email us at email@example.com to discuss any queries, we are always here to help.
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 lunch, snacks and drinks which you may want to your session. We have tea and coffee for you to help yourselves to.
For stone setting courses, it is also recommended to bring Optivisors if you have any or glasses which allow you to see smaller stones.
