Sunday 3rd October 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?
Unlike other weekend classes which involve completing a specific project, this class hands the control over to you. You are able to design and make a project of your choice, that may be a project with the aim to practice a certain skill, or maybe you are looking to make a special present, or create something you have always wanted to own, this class provides you with the tutor support, professional tools and a friendly, welcoming environment to make your own designs. You will need a little experience to join this class. Some basic knowledge is required so you are not a complete beginner within the workshop. For complete beginners we recommend a structured workshop such as bangle making or stacking ring making so you can begin to gain an understanding of the basic skills to then come along to one of these sessions.
Our workshop is equipped with everything a jeweller could wish for. You will have your very own solid jewellers workbench to work on to complete your projects and your own tool kit meaning you won’t have to wait for tools. Your bench is also equipped with its own pendant motor. In the workshop you will also find soldering equipment on each bench, a wide range of professional stone setting tools for various stone setting styles, a wide range of hand tools, texturing tools, a rolling mill, a hydraulic press, polishing equipment, dapping tools and punches, all of which will allow you the chance to create your designs within a professional setting.
Please do not book if you do not agree with our Coronavirus procedures.
This class is suitable for those with some basic jewellery making experience, allowing you to progress with your own projects with plenty of tutor support. We will email you in advance of the class starting to ascertain what your plans are for the session, this will allow us the chance to structure the day and plan what you will need for your session. We support you throughout the session and provide demonstrations to show you the techniques and steps needed to create your own projects.
Weekend classes are limited to a maximum of 4 students allowing for plenty of tutor attention.
What is included?
- All tools and consumables are supplied
- Please bring refreshments as we are no longer able to provide them
The cost of this course does not include materials.
A couple of weeks before the class is due to start, we will contact you via email to discuss your intended designs for the session, we will be able to suggest suitable materials for your projects and order then in time for the class. It also allows us the opportunity to prepare suitable handouts to assist each of you with your designs and prepare any demonstrations which will really help you develop your skills.

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.
