Our first ever and very exciting full week summer school. An intensive and in depth week long course spent in our wonderful workshop. Build and improve your skills, knowledge and confidence in jewellery making. Tea and refreshments will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
Each day will start with a new technique demonstration and there will be a short project to work on if you want to make use of the technique. There will also be time each day to work on your own projects and designs with Lex's support and guidence. All the projects and techniques are optional so if you have something you would rather be working on that's absolutely fine. We will spend some time in the first session discussing what each student wants to acheive during the week and there will be plenty of space and time to work independantly to acheive these goals.
