with Matt Dwyer
This two-day workshop focuses on three of the most important techniques of jewellery making; design, soldering and finishing, and how simple changes and considerations in each can significantly improve the quality of the finishes of a students’ work. Fun for ‘rewarding’ reasons, this workshop will put a smile on everyone’s faces, when upon its completion, student’s outlook on making, coupled with new professional techniques, will lift the quality of their work to a completely new level. Starting with smart design and planning, followed by learning profession clean crisp soldering techniques, and finishing with professional polishing techniques, students will leave with a whole new way of thinking, and will never make in the same way again. For those students who are forever frustrated with the quality of their finishes, this is a valuable 2-day workshop which will develop significant changes in their making, whether it is as a hobbyist or professional jeweller.
