Summer School 2
Summer School 2
Vanilla Ink invites students who have already started their journey into jewellery making to revise their practice and skill up during the second of our Summer School courses.
Situated at the fully-equipped Vanilla Ink Jewellery School, the course will be a week-long intensive look at processes, techniques and skills designed to increase your ability and confidence before heading back to college, uni or your own bench.
This is for those with a couple of year’s making experience under their belts and the week will be an intense refresher course, designed to revitalise and rejuvenate the memory, while brushing up on skills and preparing for you next extensive learning. This is the chance to connect with a Master Goldsmith and benefit from his vast knowledge. Hints, tips and tricks of the trade will all be taught alongside a recap of previous skills and processes.
In this week we will look at creating and bezel setting various stones, scoring & folding, press forming, an introduction to enamelling, water casting, plus much more! On the last day, you’ll be invited to experiment and make your own piece(s) with our guidance.
This course is for those that have experience in making either at Vanilla Ink or through another learning provider. All tools and base metals are provided within the course. Remember to bring a sketchbook! Feel free to bring your own silver and your own tools if you prefer. The workshop will be closed for lunch between 1pm-2pm.
**please note classes may be cancelled due to lack of attendees. In the unlikely event, you will be fully refunded and notified the day before the class is scheduled**
If you can not attend the class but someone you know can take your place then please let us know ahead of the class, we can only refund the class if there is at least 3 days notice.
