Exploring jewellery made with beads, combined with wire work and construction, this beginners' course will give you ideas for jewellery making and design. You will make pieces from scratch, before progressing on to more advanced courses.
The course fee covers only basic materials and equipment available in the studio. You should bring your own beads, thread and wire (to be advised by tutor at first class). You will need an A4 sketchbook and may want to bring a digital camera to document your progress and to make a visual record of techniques.

This course was FANTASTIC. I am a bit of a “serial course taker” and this was possibly the best training type course I have ever taken. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and talented at teaching what they know to people who have little or no background in mechanics. They are also very charismatic and make the material interesting and fun, as well as relevant. The facilities are excellent and went beyond my expectation. The garage is clean, warm, and well lit. The selection of tools and availability for students to use was key to this being a successful experience and the limit on student numbers ensured that everyone had an equal opportunity to get their hands dirty and do the practical lessons. I can’t recommend this course highly enough! I feel like I have gained an entirely new skill set and I look forward to putting it to use over the next months (and years) as I work on my own car. As an aside, although I would expect no less from a college, I want to commend both instructors for the exceptionally equal way that women were treated on this course. I entered my first lesson prepared to have to “stick up for myself” in a traditionally male-oriented area of study, and I never once had the slightest indication from the instructors or from the other students that I was in any way different from the men. While this should be the norm, sadly it isn’t in the automotive world and it is often frustrating just walking into a shop to buy parts. Well done for fostering such a gender-equal and positive atmosphere!
