This course will give you the possibility to explore and experiment with different setting techniques and to find new ways to use them in an unconventional way.
The course will focus on different projects:
1. Trapping stones in liquid metal.
2. Using uncommon materials for jewellery making and setting.
3. Setting found objects and small valuable treasures.

You will be encouraged to look for various ways of how to set stones and objects and explore the possibilities of embracing them in alternative ways and methods. The creative journey is as important as the final outcome and the course aims to provide you with new skills and experiences.

Who is the course for?
Jewellers, artists, craft practitioners and students who are looking to explore new approaches to make, who want to get the chance to experiment and broaden their creative working practices. Basic jewellery-making skills are essential.

Cost: £590 (most materials incl.).
