The Design Make Sell course gives learners an introduction to the process of designing and making jewellery, along with the opportunity to learn and develop technical skills to create their own unique piece. Additionally students receive a thorough introduction to entrepreneurial and employability skills, bolstered by a primer on jewellery retail.
Workshop sessions start with basic piercing and filing exercises in metal, exploring ways of shaping metal and an introduction to texturing metal.
