Jewellery Making

Portmarnock Community School Adult Education Dept.

Introduction to Jewellery Making.
In this 8 week practical course you will be introduced to the basic metalwork skills needed to make
jewellery. Through a series of assigned projects you will be taught how to cut and prepare metal, create texture and how to solider. Each finished project will be a piece of jewellery for you to keep or gift to a loved one. The final 2 weeks will be free for students to put the skills they have learned into making pieces of their own design.
All the tools necessary will be made available for you during the class. Should anyone to continue making outside of the class they will need to acquire their own tools.
The course includes enough base metal (Brass) to complete the course however if you wish to make
more the purchase of additional materials can be facilitated.

The tutor will allow plenty of capacity for individual students to alter each project to suit their skill level. Some people will take to the making very quickly and will perhaps make many pieces, while at the same time others may make just one. By going around to each student individually the tutor will make sure that each person gets out of the class what they had hoped for.
