What will I make?

This course is an opportunity to work on your own, individual projects, supported by expert knowledge from the tutor. It is important that the tutor knows of your project in advance so that the correct guidance can be given. If you are unsure of what to make, the tutor will offer ideas of projects and techniques to cover during the course.

What will happen on the day?

You will start the course getting to know your fellow makers, sharing your project ideas and work plans. During the five weeks, you will create your chosen project with full guidance from your instructor. This is a fantastic opportunity to troubleshoot, learn new techniques, and work in an inspiring, community setting!

What skills do I need?

Difficulty Level: MEDIUM

No previous experience needed, just a steady hand, a little patience and willingness to give it a go! Don't worry if you feel you're not artistic or creative, you will be taken through the whole process step by step.

What should I bring?

- Reading glasses (if you need them!) 

- Money or card payment for optional gold plating and posting rings to you (if collecting isn't possible)

What should I wear? 

Clothes: Casual and not too precious as they may get a bit dusty or damaged.  Avoid long, loose fitting sleeves and anything that might catch or get caught whilst you are working.

Shoes: Casual flat shoes and no open toed sandals in case you drop a hammer or something hot on them!

Hair: Tie long hair back.
