Jewellery Workshops and Courses

I am a qualified Goldsmith with over 30 years experience in the jewellery Trade. I have had a successful career both as a goldsmith, running my own shop and workshop, but also with my involvement with the UCE (Birmingham School of Jewellery) as a lecturer at the University but also as an NVQ Internal and External Examiner to the students of the University and also to work placed students in the Jewellery quarter. This is something I particularly enjoyed doing. I have also designed and written Jewellery courses and their curriculum, which has been approved and passed by the examining board and implemented into colleges such as North Warwickshire College of Art, which is still running to this day.

In 2016 I had the great honour of designing and hand-making The Prince's Trust Anniversary Trophy as they celebrated their 40th year in business and I shared this celebration with them as I also celebrated my 30th anniversary in May 2016, which was set up by The Prince's Trust! This is something I am enormously proud of.

It was an even greater sense of occasion and celebration for me as I was also able to present the Anniversary Trophy I had made to His Royal Highness Prince Charles, which really was a highlight of my career!

With this accolade under my belt, Shane and I knew that it was time to move our careers in a different direction. With the love and passion I have for jewellery making, we decided to go back to those roots that gave me so much pleasure... The teaching and lecturing of Jewellery Making to people of all ages, allowing me to give my students an insight into the fascinating world of fine jewellery making, allowing them to be taught the fundamental skills of the Silversmith or Goldsmith.

The jewellery courses are structured in such a way that, as a total beginner you will learn on the first day how to make your very own silver ring, and by making this first piece of jewellery you will cover an array of techniques. This is the one and only time that all recruits make the same piece of jewellery. Once completed, you can then design and hand make your own pieces, the design stage and of course the making process is something that I will guide and support you through.

For anyone who may be more advanced in jewellery making, it will still be necessary for you to make that first silver ring, in order for me to evaluate your skills and more importantly so that you get used to using my tools and equipment.

Once completed, you will be able to join any of our morning courses that  tend to run on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am till 2pm @ 15 Euros each morning, this includes refreshments, and any materials used are charged additionally.
