The Course: 
The aim of the Tutored Access in the Workshop is to provide access to a professional working studio for jewellers who can't afford or aren't ready to set up a full studio for themselves. 
On top of this the jewellery studio is located in a stunning grounds of Montsalvat, a creative environment set in an artists colony, to give you a whole inspiring experience of working.
You also have the added benefit of the 30 years of knowledge and experience that I have to share with you. I trained in England at the Royal College of Art to Masters degree level, in Germany and with renowned Silversmith Richard Fox making his designs for BVLGARI. My many teachers have included: Michael Rowe, Richard Fox, David Watkins, Onno Boekhoudt, Marianne Forrest, Wendy Ramshaw, Hans Stofer, Cynthia Cousins and Allan Scharff.

 

During the Tutored Access Workshop I will be there to help you on a limited basis.  My regular class sudents have priority and in the spare time I will be available to assist you
You must have completed any 1 class with me previously
 You can be a beginner with a little experience or an experienced jeweller, as long as you have done a jewellery course with me and know the basics

I will assist up to 3 students, a nice small group, with any questions about design, manufacture, soldering, tool use, machinery use, soldering and finishing techniques while you are working on your own jewellery projects
 Each student will get their own bench space equipped with hand tools as you have experienced previously
All soldering and annealing will be assisted by me

• Dont wear loose clothing such as flared sleeves or scarves
• Bring reading glasses if you wear them
• A pair of good steady hands
• A pen and notebook
• Tie long hair back
